5 is the error for access denied, you probably need to be in an administrator command line

The name (after /n) has to be the company name you used in MakeCert: "CN=My Company Name".

You could make a certificate with Microsoft Windows as the company name, but it shouldn't matter. The company name I think is for human-use only.

We are still testing. IF (and thats a big IF) this works, I will post a nice detailed outline, probably including some programs / scripts that I have/will write to make it easier.

Currently we know where the animation is, we know how to edit it, we know how to put it back in a DLL, and now for the final step, convincing Windows that's it okay to play a different animation. Each of these steps is quite elaborate.

Do you have an animation ready? Or did you just want a static image? Cause I think making a new animation is going to be the hard part for me...

Interesting, it works for me. You're using
SignTool sign /ac C:\Cert\BB1.cer /s BB1CertStore /n "My Company Name" /t http://timestamp.verisign.com/scripts/timestamp.dll C:\bootres2.dll ?

Run "c:\Windows\certmgr.msc" (not CertMgr.exe). On the left you should see a folder called "BB1CertStore". Open it and then open "Certificates". Your certificate should be on that list. "Issued To" and "Issued By" should both be the company name you are using. You should also see it under "Personal">"Certificates". Double clicking on the one in personal should say "You have a private key that corresponds to this certificate" near the bottom. Check the other properties, make sure they match the ones for "C:\Cert\BB1.cer".

If everything matches then I have no idea why you would be getting "SignTool Error: No certificates were found that met all the given criteria".

Please report the command you are using and the error message (or issue).
