The Design of Software (CLOSED)

A public forum for discussing the design of software, from the user interface to the code architecture. Now closed.

The "Design of Software" discussion group has been merged with the main Joel on Software discussion group.

The archives will remain online indefinitely.

Automated Code Signing

Part of my build process signs the code I create.  For example, this is roughly the command I use:

signcode.exe -a sha1 -spc mycompany.spc -i -v mycompany.pvk -n "My App" -p "Microsoft Strong Cryptographic Provider" -t myapp.exe

Every time this runs, it pops up and asks me for my private key password.  Isn't there some way to install the key (or password??) on my machine (in my user-specific protected storage?) so it can look it up rather than prompting? 

This is the only step of my build process that requires manual intervention, and I'd like to automate it.

Thanks for any ideas.
