IChain2::Certificates property

[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 X509Chain Class in the System.Security.Cryptography.X509Certificates namespace.]

The Certificates property retrieves a Certificates collection that represents the certificates in the chain. This is the default property.

This property is read-only.
