May. 29th, 2008 @ 10:50 am Certificate Services and Adobe digital signatures
I've been trying for some time to locate documentation on how to use Microsoft's Certificate Services in combination with Adobe products (Reader and Acrobat) to employ digital signatures.

I haven't been able to find any at all. Surely I'm not the only one who wants to do this?

Also, I've been able to get it working fairly well under Windows XP. Using the Certificate Services web enrollment interface, I'll generate a certificate for a user. As long as I'm using Internet Explorer, the certificate will be automatically stored in the Windows Certificate Store, and Adobe (Reader/Acrobat) will find it with no problem.

However, none of that happens under Vista. IE7 seems badly broken with Certificate Services, and I'm relegated to using Firefox to work with the web interface. When I do that the certificate does get stored in the Certificate Store, but Reader/Acrobat are unable to see it. When I go into the Certificates MMC and export the certificate, in every format available, Reader/Acrobat refuse to read any of the formats.

Can anyone offer advice?
