    Problem using SelfCert (Office XP)

    Believe me, I have looked for the answer. Now you are my only hope.

    I developed a workbook template for my group with a bit of code in the background. I created a certificate using SelfCert and that worked great. A couple of times over the past couple of years I have gotten a message that there was something wrong with the certificate and it was discarded. No problem, recreate the certificate and re-sign the project. This also worked until today. When I tried to create another signature, SelfCert gave the error message "SelfCert Error: Could not create a certificate."

    I have tried Office's detect and repair. I have tried removing and reinstalling this component of Office (but not all of Office). I have tried moving SelfCert.exe, Makecert.exe, and Signer.dll to another drive. Nothing has worked. Please, any help correcting this problem would be appreciated.

    Office XP and Win XP Professional

    Thanks in advance,

    I've never tried SelfCert, so I can't help I'm afraid.
    The obvious alternate solution is to get a certificate from Thawte, Verisign or some other similar organisation.
