    Thawte Certificate cannot be used to sign Setup.msi

      HI All,

       

      Could you please help me in resolving this issue with Thawte certificate. I exported the AIR file using the Thawte certificate, but when i use the ADT command to package it into exe(for ex : adt -package -target native  -storetype pkcs12 -keystore <<new cert>> myNativeExe.exe migratedApp.air), it is giving me error msg "Certificate in xxx.p12 could not be used to sign setup.msi".

       

      I'm using Windows 7 machine and Adobe Flex Builder 3.

       

      If anyone could suggest a workaround to this issue will be very helpful.

       

      Thanks,

          Hi All,

           

          It seems that Adobe AIR is not picking up the Thawte Certificate details on Windows 7. I build a AIR with Thawte certificate on Windows 7 machine. Took that AIR file into Windows XP and ran the adt command to generate the executable using the same Thawte certificate and it worked. The executable was generated. And it also installs fine on Windows 7 machine.

           

          So there seems to be a problem with Adobe AIR not recognizing Thawte certificate in Windows 7.

           

          Hope this helps.

           

          Thanks,
