ICEnroll::put_RequestStoreType method (xenroll.h)

[This property is no longer available for use as of Windows Server 2008 and Windows Vista.]

The RequestStoreType property sets or retrieves the type of store to use for the store specified by the RequestStoreName property. This store type is passed directly to the CertOpenStore function.

The default value of this property is sz_CERT_STORE_PROV_SYSTEM. If the default is not to be used, this property must be set to the same value before calls to createPKCS10/createFilePKCS10 and again before calls to acceptPKCS7/acceptFilePKCS7.

Only system stores are supported. This property was first defined in the ICEnroll interface.

This property is read/write.

The ability to set this property is disabled when the Certificate Enrollment Control is executed as a scripted control.


BSTR     bstrStoreType = NULL;

// pEnroll is previously instantiated ICEnroll interface pointer

// get the storetype
hr = pEnroll->get_RequestStoreType( &bstrStoreType );
if ( FAILED ( hr ) )
    printf("Failed getting RequestStoreType - %x\n", hr );
    printf( "RequestStoreType: %ws\n", bstrStoreType );
// free BSTR when done
if ( NULL != bstrStoreType )
    SysFreeString( bstrStoreType );

// set the storetype
// bstrNewType is a BSTR that is previously set to a valid store type
hr = pEnroll->put_RequestStoreType( bstrNewType );
if ( FAILED ( hr ) )
    printf("Failed setting RequestStoreType - %x\n", hr );
    printf( "RequestStoreType was set to %ws\n", bstrNewType );
