InfoPath 2010 asking for SmartCard


Hello All,

I have developed an InfoPath 2010 Solution which stores the Documents on a SharePoint. The Customer is using SmartCard Authentication for VPN. The InfoPath Documents are signed and fully trusted.

The Problem is that all Users which have installed a SmartCard-Reader are prompted to insert a SmartCard if they are trying to open the document. After the press Cancel twice the can open the Document without any problems.

Have anyone an Idea how I can stop InfoPath 2010 asking for a SmartCard?
