I just installed trial version of SecureBlackBox for .NET and I'm facing problems with accessing PKCS #11 device. I'm running sample application CryptoTokenDemo. When I try to open storage (that is PKCS #11 Library file) the error show saying:
"Error opening storage: ...
with additional message in Polish language which I would translate to:
"Failed to load DLL library 'SecureBlackbox_PKCS11Proxy': The specified module could not be found. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x8007007E)"

I'm sure that the library I choose is a PKCS #11 library (Oberthur Card Systems Pkcs#11 library) - it works with another software. The same problem occurs with another PKCS #11 libraries installed on my system - CryptoCard PKCS#11 library and Siemens Card API PKCS#11 Module.

Could you please try to help me with this problem?
If you need the Oberthur libraries I use, you can get it from

Please re-read the message. It doesn't tell you about your PKCS#11 driver. It tells you about a specific library which is part of SecureBlackbox.

Thank you for your prompt response, it works now.

One more question. Does your product supports or will support Cryptographic Message Syntax of signing data?

See ElMessageSigner / ElMessageVerifier classes. CMS is a more advanced and updated version of PKCS#7, and it's supported by the mentioned classes.
