ICEnroll4::createFilePKCS10 method

[This method is no longer available for use as of Windows Server 2008 and Windows Vista.]

The createFilePKCS10 method creates a base64-encoded PKCS #10 certificate request and saves it in a file. This method was first defined in the ICEnroll interface.

This method differs from the createPKCS10 method only in saving the base64-encoded PKCS #10 certificate request (in BSTR form) to the file specified by the wszPKCS10FileName parameter.

Syntax


HRESULT createFilePKCS10(
  [in]  BSTR DNName,
  [in]  BSTR Usage,
  [in]  BSTR wszPKCS10FileName
);

Parameters

DNName [in]

The distinguished name (DN) of the entity for which the request is being made. DNName must follow the X.500 naming convention. For example "CN=User, O=Microsoft". If a two-letter prefix does not exist, an object identifier (OID) may be provided instead.

Usage [in]

An OID that describes the purpose of the certificate being generated, for example, individual or commercial Authenticode certificate, or client authentication. You can also specify multiple OIDs separated by a comma.

The OID is passed through to the PKCS #10 request. The control does not examine the OID.

wszPKCS10FileName [in]

The name of the file in which the base64-encoded PKCS #10 (in BSTR form) is saved. The contents of this file may be submitted to a certification authority for processing.

Return value

VB

The return value is an HRESULT. A value of S_OK indicates success.

If the method fails, the return value is an HRESULT indicating the error. For a list of common error codes, see Common HRESULT Values.

Remarks

By default, the Microsoft Base Cryptographic Provider is used, and a unique signature key is created.

When this method is called from script, the method displays a user interface that asks whether the user will allow creation of a certificate request and whether the user will allow a write operation to the file system.

Examples

BSTR bstrOID = NULL;
BSTR bstrFileName = NULL;
ICEnroll4 * pEnroll = NULL;

                         TEXT(",S=Your State")  // state
                         TEXT(",C=Your Country") );  // country/region
if (NULL == bstrDN)
{
    printf("Memory allocation failed for bstrDN.\n");
    goto error;
}

// Generate the OID. For example, "1.3.6.1.4.1.311.2.1.21"
bstrOID = SysAllocString(TEXT("<OIDHERE>"));
if (NULL == bstrOID)
{
    printf("Memory allocation failed for bstrOID.\n");
    goto error;
}

// Specify the file name, for example, "myPKCS10.req"
bstrFileName = SysAllocString(TEXT("<FILENAMEHERE>"));
if (NULL == bstrFileName)
{
    printf("Memory allocation failed for bstrFileName.\n");
    goto error;
}

// Create the PKCS10 (stored in a file).
hr = pEnroll->createFilePKCS10( bstrDN, bstrOID, bstrFileName );
if (FAILED(hr))
{
   printf("Failed createFilePKCS10 - %x\n", hr);
   goto error;
}
else
    printf("Successfully created file containing PKCS10\n");

error:
// Clean up resources and so on.

if ( bstrFileName )
    SysFreeString( bstrFileName );

if ( bstrDN )
    SysFreeString( bstrDN );

if ( bstrOID )
    SysFreeString( bstrOID );

if ( pEnroll )
       pEnroll->Release();

CoUninitialize();
