I followed those directions to convert my .p12 (same as .pfx) cert to a .spc and .pvk file and InstallAware gives a generic error when it gets to the code-signing part and won't continue.

What am I missing?

I had that same trouble and it caused me lots of head scratching. Then I found out that our certificate had expired and been renewed to a new certificate instead of renewing the 'same one' by Verisign, so I just needed the new certificate. Make sure your certificate is still valid (check date).

Thanks for the reply, but the certificate is brand new.

One step in those instructions however didn't work. On this line:

openssl rsa -in MyKeyTmp.pem -outform PVK -pvk-strong -out MyCert.pvk


-pvk-strong was an unknown argument, so I removed it and it worked. But as I mentioned InstallAware didn't like the resulting file(s). Wish it would provide more information about what the error is.

Hey guys,

Just to let you know, InstallAware now was built-in PFX support!
