Self Certificate Problems

I have noticed a few old posts on this, but thought I should start a new one.

I have created an excel workbook that uses macros (still not working, but that is another issue!).

I made a self certificate, and distributed it among my colleagues.

Those on XP were able to accept the certificate, and it held that certificate, so every time they use it, no problems.

However 2 of my colleagues (one who is running Vista - pah! and one who is running Windows 7) have issues. They can accept the certificates, buit it does not hold, the only way they can run my macros without having to accept it every time is to enable all macros - obviously a bit of a dodgy thing to have to do.

Is it a windows 7 security thing that it will only work with a digitally verified signature??

Any comments appreciated :eek:)

I am interpreting your post as saying that you created the certificate in XP and distributed the same one to your colleagues - including those using Vista & Windows 7.
Have you trying creating the certificate individually on the Vista & Windows 7 machines?
I have done that (for Outlook) on a Windows 7 machine and have not had a problem.

The way we all share the file is through a shared drive on the pc. So everyone accesses the template. ideally I only want to create a certificate once.. can I make multiple certificates?

Hi Derek,

I used this initially to do my certs, so not really anything there that can help (as far as I could see!). I am just going use one of the windows 7 machines to create the certificate ,and hope that will work with all versions of M/S OS.

Cheers!
