Signing a ClickOnce manifest file using a spc/pvk certificate

To sign a ClickOnce manifest file/assembly you need a pfx file without chaining information.

First we need to convert the spc/pvk file to a pfx file. As Stuart found out you use the pvk2pfx tool to accomplish this.

If we try to use this certificate and it contains chaining information we will get an error stating

"Cannot find the certificate and private key for decryption"

Then we need to make sure that the pfx don't include the chaining information as described in the case @ commodo (importing and exporting the pfx).

When these steps has been completed, you can build and sign your application.
