Signtool error RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello all,

    Need help: I am trying to sign files on my build machine (Windows Server 2012 R2). I have installed my .pfx file into the personal store. Calling signtool my command is as follows:

    signtool sign /v /s "Personal" /n "Elmer" C:\signing\Myfile.exe

    I am getting an error - "SignTool Error: File not found:"

    I also tried using the /a switch and got the same error 

    signtool sign /v /s "Personal" /a C:\signing\AccuCT_Setup.exe

    Can anyone help me figure out what I'm doing wrong. One thing I'm not sure about is the name to put when using the /n. The documentation says use the subject name. Can anyone tell me how to determine the subject name of my cert?

    Note: I also tried installing my pfx in the third party trusted root as well with the same results.
