Self-certification to avoid macro security dialogs


Your organization requires that all macros and add-ins have a security certificate before they're allowed to run in PowerPoint. This prevents you from running even your own macros or add-ins.


For use on your own PC, you can "self-certify" your code.

Self-certificates work only on your own PC. If you need to certify and distribute presentations or add-ins to other users, you'll need a regular commercial code certificate. The SelfCert.exe dialog (shown above) contains more information about this and a link to a list of commercial certificate providers.
