This may sound like a silly question as most first time questions are.
I am experimenting with the SecureBlackBox PKI package.
I would like to programmatically view the "issued to:" information included in a PKCS #12 file.
This is easy to do when (for example) you use the DemoCer.dpr (yes we use Delphi 7) sample program but you need to insert the certificate password to view this information.

I have seen this done by others so there must be a way but as it happens I just "can't see it".
Any suggestions?

Certificates contained in PKCS#12 file are stored in encrypted form, so there's no way to access the details of the certificate without providing the password.
