Description Timur 2020-06-12 19:17:54 UTC
In Windows 7 LO uses Windows certificates system store (which makes sense) to sign ODF and PDF.
But with Start Certificate Manager it starts Kleopatra (which then doesn't make sense).
Start Certificate Manager should start Certificates (Certmgr.msc), a Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-in.

On Win 10 it says "Could not find any certificate manager."

I'm running a Windows 7 x64 which has the gpg4win package installed on another drive and LibreOffice is unable to pick it up for PGP keys. 
May be a whole "Path to gpg4win directory" UI interface would be useful.

On a Windows 10 box, same LibreOffice version, and gpg4win installed on C: has no trouble finding the PGP keys.

The defined apps for certificate management seems to be fixed in the code


And certmgr.msc is not listed there.

So I guess user *must* install one of the hard-coded tools to sign in windows 10.

Also, not sure certmgr.msc can handle GPG, which may be the reason for forcing gpg4win

-> doc.

(still LibreOffice cannot find X509 certs (Cacert) in the list of available certs)

Thanks for comment. 
Seems that this should be changed so that there's option where from both certificates are used and certificates store started.
