Hi all,

in our company we use digital signatures we created by ourself via Acrobat and linked them with the Windows Certificate Manager (so without password). So they are linked with the personal Windows account. 

But: If we change our workstation and work at another computer (of course with the same Windows account) we don't have access to the signatures. 

Does anybody know why or how I get access to the signatures?

Thanks!

That is because your Windows certificate store is dependent on the user's current directory profile.

 

Unless these self-signed digital certificates are used with a roaming user profile and manged in a centralized fashion via server, you will need to manually install it in that computer or create a shared or mapped folder in the computer where the certificate resides so that you can access it from another workstation.
