Hello,

Have had a code-signing certs for the past few years (renewed every year). When to purchase a new one from DigiCert, following these instructions exactly:

How to make a CSR: https://knowledge.digicert.com/solution/SO29005.html
How to install the cert: https://knowledge.digicert.com/solution/SO29171.html

In the MMC, the certificate is located here:

Certificates (Local Computer)
--> Personal
----> Certificates
------> TheNewCert

But it does not show up as an option in the PowerShell Studio -> Project -> Settings -> Output Settings -> Signing -> Certificate pop up selector.

For kicks, I also put a copy here:

Certificates (Local Computer)
--> Trusted Root Certificate Authorities
----> Certificates
------> TheNewCert

Note that all of my previous, expired certs do show in the PSS list. The new one does not.

Properties on the new cert show:
Valid from 2/5/2020 to 2/10/2021
You have a private key that corresponds to this certificate
Signature algorithm: sha256RSA
Signature has algorithm: sha256
Enable all purposes for this certificate <- Checked

I have rebooted a few times...

Any suggestions?

The list that is shown in Settings is your certificate store, which is a Windows dialog that shows your trusted certificates.

Are you able to find your certificate in PowerShell using the following cmdlet:

Code: Select all

Get-Certificate
