(Visual Basic 6.0) ScMinidriver - Load Certificate from Smart Card or USB Token by Index
See more ScMinidriver Examples
Demonstrates how to load a certificate located on a smart card or USB token by key container index.
Note: This functionality was introduced in Chilkat v126.96.36.199.
Note: The ScMinidriver functionality is for Windows-only because ScMinidriver DLLs only exist on Windows. In the next version, Chilkat will be releasing a Pkcs11 class to support Linux, MacOSX, and possibly other operating systems.
