Want to get rid of the annoying Windows 'Do you want to install certificate' message on the server while installing the certificate. This being an Asp.net application, added problem is that the message comes up on the server box and not on the client browser's machine!

This is what I am doing, setting the access type to SBWinCertStorage.TSBStorageAccessType.atLocalMachine,

and then calling TElWinCertStorage.Add with parameters (cert, "ROOT", false, false, false). The Protected parameter is set to false, but when the website is published, the message box still comes up, sometimes without any text on it. OS used is Windows XP Prof.

What could be wrong?

The message is a security measure taken by Windows in order to prevent addition of fake certificates (which can compromise security). There's no legitimate way to avoid it.

Sincerely yours
