MAUI how to load pfx embedded

Dario Galvani 1 Reputation point

Hi all,
I'm really neewbie in MAUI and I'm doing some exercises to undestand how it works.
Now, I'm going mad about this issue.

I have a file myCert.pfx (compiling action as embedded resource). I'd like manage it.

	var certificate = new X509Certificate2("myCert.pfx", "", X509KeyStorageFlags.Exportable);  

Everything I do I get "fileNotFound Exception" ...

Which is the right way to write the istruction? or What I've got to do to make it works?

    On MAUI, you need to use Assembly to open the embedded resource file.

    Please refer to the following documentation and sample to get more details about it.

    Despite this Xamarin's documentation, after my testing, it still works fine on maui.
