 The Certificate
+------- Additional Comments From sebastien@ximian.com  2004-07-23 11:36 -------
+CreateFromSignedFile support is incomplete (and documented as such).
+It's main use is to get a certificate from a signed file (like an
+Authenticode signed EXE file). For your sample the use of
+CreateFromCertFile should be used (and should work).
+However the code shouldn't throw a NullReferenceException in this case.
