Easier password management

If your digital certificate is located on a USB token (USB stick) you can not specify a password in Visual Installer. Instead you must enter a password when the driver software that co-operates with the USB token asks for it.

Normally this is done everytime you code sign a file. But if you code sign installations often, this can be a clumsy and time-consuming way to handle the password and code signing process. Instead you can change a setting in the driver software, so you only need to enter the password once per session.

If you use SafeNet as a driver/client software you can follow the steps below to change the setting, so you only need to enter the password once per session:

1. Open SafeNet Authentication Client Tools.

2. Navigate to Start > Program Files > Safenet > Safenet Authentication Client Tools.

3. Click the Advanced View icon (gold gear).

4. In the menu tree in the left pane, select Client Settings.

5. In the right pane, select the Advanced tab.

6. On the Advanced tab, select the Enable single logon option.

7. Click Save.

8. To activate the single logon feature, log off from the computer and log on again.

You will find more information in the SafeNet documentation and on the website where you bought your digital certificate (see the support or FAQ section of the website).
