Include certificate chain in pfx export

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 15, 2010    Points: 0   Category :.NET Framework
When using the export method of an X509Certificate2 object, can anyone tell me how to include the certificate chain within the pfx file? I would like to accomplish this without using CAPICOM. I can successfuly export the certificate but the trust chain is not included in the pfx file.

Export Encrypted Certificate

Hi, I have successfully created the neccessary encryption certifaicates/keys/master key on a local sql server instance. I would like now to export that same settings to a new client instance so that we can do the following: Make sure that only licensed users are able to log in to the system. So the way I thought I could do this was to create a master encrypted value on our main server and then export this certificate to the client db. Then I would store encrypted values (from our main server) in the client user table. Upon logging into the app the application would attempt to decrypt these values using the orginal installed certificate, upon successful decryot to a value that the application will recognise the user will then be able to log in. Is this sort of thing possible using sql server. I have succesfully restored the certificate onto a new instance but upon running the decrypt it does not recognise the encrytpted value. Any help/suggestions/links would be most most welcome/ Thanks in advance

Why is broken Certificate Chain trusted by WCF ?


Hi all,

I have the following scenario which I really do not understand why this is working.


1. I have secure client  on Transport Level with WsHttpBinding

                binding.Security.Mode = SecurityMode.Transport;
                binding.Security.Transport.ClientCredentialType = HttpClientCredentialType.Certificate;
                binding.Security.Message.ClientCredentialType = MessageCredentialType.None;
                binding.Security.Message.NegotiateServiceCredential = false;
                binding.Security.Message.EstablishSecurityContext = false;


CertificateValidationMode = System.ServiceModel.Security.X509CertificateValidationMode.ChainTrust;


RevocationMode = X509RevocationMode.NoCheck;

2. I have a server which is using a self signed certificate, signed by an intermediate CA and this intermediate CA was signed by a self signed root CA

Install Failure - Certificate Chain Trust?



Hello Community,

I'm trying to do a basic install of SQL Server Express 2008 on an XP SP3 machine.  It had been working prior to an install of Visual Studio 2008 (with SQL).  I had to uninstall and reinstall for testing purposes.  Now I can't get an install to complete.  After days of uninstalling and reinstalling, including blowing out all Visual Studio stuff, all .net stuff, and reinstalling .net 3.5 SP1 (no Visual Studio), I still can't get SQL Server Express 2008 installed (and running, that is...the management studio and config manger get installed).  Here is the error on install:

"A connection was successfully established with the server, but then an error occurred during the pre-login handshake. (provider: SSL Provider, error: 0 - The certificate chain was issued by an authority that is not trusted.)"

I have no idea why certificates are even looked at.  I've verified in the Configuration Manager that Encryption is set to "No".  I have full admin rights on the machine.

Trying to stop and start the SQL server in the config manager now yields a new clue in the error log:

"Server      A self-generated certificate was successfully loaded for encryption"

OK, that's good.  However, now I see this after a timeout

Export Visio Database Table Names to Excel

If you use the Enterprise Architect edition of Microsoft Visio for data modeling regularly, then there is a good chance that at some point you've wanted to export just the table names into Excel. You might want to do this to map logical ERD entities to physical data model tables, track project status by entity, or track overlap between database versions.

Configuring Profile Image Export in SharePoint 2010

It's no secret that I am thrilled with the new social features of SharePoint 2010. I am most excited about the new Profile Picture handling. I strongly believe that the more we can show the faces of our colleagues to one another the more connected we will feel. Clearly Microsoft feels that way as witnessed by the many features that make use of the Profile Image like the Activity Feed and Colleagues list

Include a Crystal Report in .NET Web Service for Dynamic In-Memory-Only DataSet



I would like to use Crystal Reports in a .NET web service.  Ultimately I would like to convert my report document to a PDF and then return the PDF as a byte array. 

My .NET DataSet is generated dynamically at run-time.  It consists of four related tables.  Since my DataSet does not have a physical datasource, I created an XML Schema file.  I then added the XML Schema file to the web service project with Add Existing Item. 

A solution for working with a dynamic in-memory DataSet exists for ASP.NET web sites and client-based forms.  I tried to use this method as it is published.  When that didn't work I tried creating the report and XML Schema directly in the web service project, but that also didn't work.


The problem is apparent when you try to set the datasource.......the code bombs on the call to SetDataSource(DataSet) with the message
ex = {"The data source object is invalid."}

Crystal Reports would save me a lot
