I am using SecureBlackBox (version to add certificates to the current user's Windows certificate store. I am having issues with the ElWinCertStorage.Add method throwing an "EDuplicateCertError" when another certificate with the same name exists in the Local system's store.

I've seen a knowledge base article stating that the Add method ignores the StorageType and PhysicalStore properties, so I can't seem to stop SBB from checking against the contents of the System store as well. Is there any way of getting around this issue?

I saw a line in the release notes that stated the ElWinCertStorage.Add method had been fixed in a 5.x release. Would the newer versoins fix the problem I'm having?

This functionality was indeed implemented later, so upgrading will solve the problem. For upgrade details please contact us via HelpDesk

Sincerely yours
