VS2017 Pro - TFS2017 Express - Sharing code signed projects RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are sharing projects in TFS now that we have more developers.  The problem is, is that we sign the assembly with a PFX and we have a domain signed certs for clickonce.  The certs are personal.  (I wanted a company version (something that we all share) but hadn't figured it out yet.)   We are unable to rebuild each others projects because we don't have each others keys.

    We sign our code so that we can create exceptions within our security systems to prevent program blocking/execution.

    What are other people doing to code sign, but share the development task?

  • Hi HScottMc,

    Welcome to the MSDN forum.

    Based on my understanding, when we use the PFX certificate file, we could see the code, but we could not build the project. We need to install the corresponding certitficate (PFX) on the machine if you want to build.

    In addition, this forum is discussing Visual Studio WPF/SL Designer, Visual Studio Guidance Automation Toolkit, Developer Documentation and Help System, and Visual Studio Editor.

    You issue is relate to TFS, since the TFS forums have been locked, the discussion for TFS has moved. I recommend you post your issue on stack overflow or developer community, where the MS support engineers for TFS will assist you with it.

    Thanks for your understanding.
