I am trying to add a certificate to a PKCS11 store.
My code:

String paramSlotToOpen = cboSlots.Text;
TElPKCS11SessionInfo Session = null;
TElPKCS11CertStorage Storage = null;

Storage = new TElPKCS11CertStorage();
Storage.DLLName = paramPkcs11Dll;

// Find the slot
int slotIndex = -1;
for (int i = 0; i < Storage.Module.SlotCount; i++)
if (Storage.Module.get_Slot(i).TokenLabel == paramSlotToOpen)

slotIndex = i;

if (slotIndex != -1)
Session = Storage.OpenSession(slotIndex, false);

Session.Login((int)SBPKCS11Base.Unit.utSecurityOfficer, "");

if (Session != null)
int keyCount = Storage.KeyCount;
TElKeyMaterial key = Storage.get_Keys(0);

TElMemoryCertStorage m = loadCertificateStore(txtCertificateFile.Text);

TElX509Certificate certificate = GetCertificate(m, 0);

Storage.Add(certificate, false);


The error occured in 'Storage.Add' with the following message:
'PKCS#11 error CKR_ATTRIBUTE_VALUE_INVALID in function C_CreateObject'

In the documentation of the HSM :
