Re: Cosign install problem

Turns out you need the UMwebCA.pem file as well. You can grab it here<>. Drop it into your /IISCosign/SSL folder. (The cosign.dll.config file is already pointing at this so it shouldn't need to be modifed. The XML tag is <CAFilePath />.)

Trust me, it was a much bigger hassle to set up IISCosign before the installer was available!

Very sorry these updates aren't part of the installer yet:

Add the following registry entry:

HKLM/SOFTWARE/University of Michigan/ITCS/Cosign

Add a string value called ConfigFile.  Set the value to "C:\Program
Files\IISCosign\cosign.dll.config" less the quotes and the path to
wherever your config file is located.

The following permissions need to be set for Windows 2003 (this is not necessary for a Win2k/IIS5 setup):

For your entire /iiscosign/ folder, IIS_WPG needs needs everything
selected except for "Special Permissions." Be sure to select the option
that applies these permissions to the folder contents and sub-folders.

For the \CosignDB\ folder:
Internet Guest Account, IUSR_[machine name]- needs Read and Write

For the \Logs\ folder:
IUSR_[machine name] - Read & execute, list folder contents, Read, Write.

Also, make sure MSXML 4.0 is installed. (The installer placed msxml.msi
in your IISCosign folder.)

Finally, don't forget to get your certificate signed by the U-M webmaster.

Cosign does not show up in a service menu because it is not a service.
That is, it is not an independently running executable.
