OPC - digital signature problem RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to sign a VSIX file (by hand, because I want to understand every single step).

    Now, my problem is, that after signing, when I verify the signature with VsixSignTool, I get the error "Some unsigned parts are present in package." ... my problem is to understand which one it means (I don't understand all the stuff that's generated at the moment... for me it seems, that some relations/files need a signature and some not).

    First (before signing) I have some files in the vsix, like "catalog.json", "extension.vsixmanifest", "MyMacros.dll", "MyMacros.pkgdef" and "1033\MyMacrosUI.dll". And of course also a "[Content_Types].xml"

    After the signature I have a new "_rels" folder containing a ".rels" file. Plus a "package\services\digital-signature" folder containing this:

    "_rels\origin.psdsor.rels", "certificate\<hash>.cer", "xml-signature\p9<...>.psdsxs", "xml-signature\_rels\p9<...>.psdsxs.rels" and "origin.psdsor"

    The signature file (p9<...>.psdsxs) does name only the "package\services\digital-signature\_rels\origin.psdsor.rels" of the new files (that I get when signing), but no other ones. So... where's the error? Which one should be named and why isn't it? What do I have to add (I guess I'm missing some relations... but I don't understand those relations...)

  • Hi Rudolf Meier,

    from the description of the thread, I can see that issue is not related with Office Development.

    so I try to contact with other forum related to this issue.

    other forums are not able to decide which is the best forum for your issue.

    so for better response and better solution for your issue.

    I move this thread to "Where is the Forum For…?" Forum.

    Thanks for your understanding.

  • No, doesn't and... I won't ask them... I guess I'm faster, when I'm trying to figure it out myself... forums are so useless in our time... incredible...
