Using the Included Samples

The Certificate Enrollment API includes multiple samples designed to help you create custom applications. Most of the samples are written by using C++, but C# and Visual Basic Scripting Edition (VBScript) samples are also included.

When you install the Microsoft Windows Software Development Kit (SDK), the following samples are installed, by default, in the %ProgramFiles%\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v7.0\Samples\Security\X509 Certificate Enrollment\ folder.

enrollPKCS7

Creates a PKCS #7 request from an existing certificate by inheriting the public and private keys and the certificate template. The sample enrolls the user in a certificate hierarchy and installs the certificate response.

C++

enrollRenewalPKCS7

Creates a PKCS #7 request object to renew an existing certificate.

C++

enrollSimpleMachineCert

Enrolls a computer in a certificate hierarchy by using a template, a certificate display name, and the certificate description.

C++, VBS

enrollSimpleUserCert

Enrolls an end user with a CA by using a template, the subject name, and the length, in bits, of the key.

C++, C#
