[Mono-dev] [mono][chktrust]: signature can't be traced back to a trusted root!

Hi all,

    I am trying to use chktrust to verify validity of the digital/counter
signature of a file. Specifically, I used AcroRD32.exe, which's been signed
by Adobe Systems, Incorporated and counter signed by verisign time stamping
To add this to mono trust store, I exported the actual certificates (.cer
files) to a specific folder (e.g c:\temp) and used certmgr like this:
         certmgr -add -c -m Trust c:\temp\Adobe.cer
         certmgr -add -c -m Trust c:\temp\Ver.cer

Command prompt tells that certificates were successfully added to the store.
However, when I ran chktrust on AcroRD32.exe, still, signature cannot be
traced, signified by the error "ERROR! AcroRd32.exe signature can't be
traced back to a trusted root!"

Any ideas?

Thank you
