Hi all
I have to add the certificate for peruser and not for the permachine .
When I am trying to add it using above mention command it is creating per machine keys (HKLM) and not the per user keys.(HKCU).
I have tried below commands but some prompt related to adding the certificate is coming for the confirmation brfore adding certificate.
certmgr.exe -add -c "<cert-file>" -s -r CurrentUser root
We need to supress the that dialog. Is their any silent parameter for certmgr.exe .

Thanks In advance.

I don't know a lot about certificate storage but, from reading good old MSDN (damn useful, this Google thing, you know: I wonder if it'll catch on?), it would appear that:

- user-level storage is the default, so I'd leave off everything after the '-s' shown in your command line;
- there is no silent switch. Use 'Start /B [your command line]' to kick it off.
