I have problem singing XML documents.

I have created certificate request using OpenSSL, sent it to CA authority, and they send be back signed certificate, after that I created certificate using OpenSSL. Now, when I tried to sign my document using demo from SecureBlackBox and my certificate I get error "RSA key data expected". After that, I created certificate using Secure Black Box, and then everything was ok, also, everything is ok, if I import certificate in Internet Explorer, mark private key exportable, and then export certificate.

Can anyone please help me what am I doing wrong?

Thank you in advance,

Would you be so kind to specify:
a) the edition (.NET/VCL/ActiveX) and build number of the package you are using,
b) the demo application you are using,
c) the exact steps you are performing.

From a first glance it seems that your private key is stored in some specific format not understood by SecureBlackbox. So we need the above information from you to be able to help you.

Thank you for quick reply,

a) I am using VCL edition, for Delphi 7.0
b) SimpleSigner, I am working for Trinet d.o.o (www.trinet.si), company from Slovenia, they bought your products few days ago.
c) Load XML, Sign, Signature type: Enveloped, Canonicalization method: Canonical, Signature method type: Signature method, Signature method: RSA SHA1.

I made a mistake, in my first post, with certificate I created, I get error: Key not loaded, and when I import it and export it from Internet Explorer, it work. Also, problem is that I have another program which work with this certificate, only SBB don't work.

I am trying to attach certificate too, but I get an error: Incorrect file type or maximum size of the file exceeded (.pfx)?

The forum accepts only ZIP files, so please compress your certificate before posting it.

The error is caused by a bug in TElX509Certificate.DetectCertFileFormat() method. We are working on a fix at the moment. The bug affects only DetectCertFileFormat() method, so you can freely load the certificate using TElX509Certificate.LoadFromStreamPFX() method.
