hi all,
i'm trying to signcode a win32 executable on Linux, using Mono's signcode.

when i issue the command..

signcode -spc myspcfromthawte.spc -v mypvkfromthawte.pvk -n "My App -
Quick Demo" -t "http://timestamp.verisign.com/scripts/timstamp.dll"

it says..

couldn't trace a similar error message on internet.

am i missing any parameters? or what should be the correct syntax of
the command.

thanks a lot.
