[CAPICOM is a 32-bit only component that is available for use in the following operating systems: Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista, and Windows XP. Instead, use the X509Certificate2 Class in the System.Security.Cryptography.X509Certificates namespace.]
The Save method saves the certificate to a file. This method was introduced in CAPICOM 2.0.
Certificate.Save( _ ByVal FileName, _ [ ByVal Password ], _ [ ByVal SaveAs ], _ [ ByVal IncludeOption ] _ )
- FileName [in]
A string that contains the name of the output file where the certificate will be saved.
