    Default Retrieve password for Code Signing

    Hello,

    I have my code signing working inside SetupBuilder and password is there.

    Previously I have been using a .bat file to code sign the EXE file and then would
    build using SB which in turn would sign the installer exe file.

    My problem is that the password is stored in the clear on a computer that died
    and I have been unable to retrieve it.

    Thus I cannot sign my program EXE file unless I get a new certificate OR
    get the password.

    Is there a way to retrieve the password from SetupBuilder "in the clear".
    Is it in the registry? There are some tools online that say they can potentially retrieve values
    in asterisk fields but my Anti-virus flags them and not sure I want to try to run them.

    I could not find a way to get the old password.

    Soooo.... I had to go back to Comodo/Sectigo and login then re-export the certificate.
    At that time you can reset the password.

    HOWEVER, I believe that triggered Microsoft Edge to begin blocking our apps because according to Microsoft a new certificate starts our "reputation" over again. They claim it is now resolved after a number of customers have installed. But just wanted you to be aware of that potential issue.

    Hello,

    if you have stored it in the project or the IDE, please send one of your projects (if stored in the project) or the SB10.LIC (if stored in the IDE) and we can try to restore your code-signing password.
