Hi

 

Here's the basic idea.

I have a word form on the computer to fill out for lending equipment. I want someone to put there signature via wacom pad. I need the signature for personal reasons not for sending out or outside certification.

 

 

I made a template for the form word 2016. On the bottom there is a signature line. I made the form on my pc in my user it works well. [Somewhere on the way I managed to get a Microsoft certificate valid for 10 yr.]

I went to another computer and there was a different user logged in it also works.

When I changed user on the second computer and double clicked the signature I get a pop up message: do I want to get a CA? If I click yes I get a web page telling me where to purchase one. I don't want to purchase I just want to add a scribbled signature on the form

 

I just want to have the signature pad on a computer and that all the users logged in (6 of them) will be able to use the form and have someone sign.

 

And advice will help

 

I'm sorry if my terms are not exact I'm learning as I go along

Sharing documents and files where a login is required is usually done today using something like Google's Cloud service where all files are available as needed and permissions can be either made Public are assigned to those who need access to them.

 

Haven't used any of the shared files services but I am sure the need for inputs from a Wacom Pad and use of a certificate needed for verification can be set up. Sounds like the sign in on another computer under a different account name is not allowing access to the same files you have set up to use under a different account and login password. This is as it should be for security reasons. If all users use the same network and login to the same account you use the signature should work for all.

 

Might check into using Google Docs services or even DropBox which has made some improvements over the years in security and the way folders and files can be shared. Maybe even OneDrive although I haven't delved into it very much.

We use the Topaz signature pads bundled with their sigplus software and their Pdoc signer software.  You can do what you're talking about with this setup, no ticket authority is required.  However, we use PDF documents instead of word for our signing.  You can sign right there in Pdoc signer and save the file as a PDF with whatever signature you want, it also timestamps it.

 

There are free Certificate Authorities out there and they don't take very long to sign up for and get one created.  You can them import them into your office software.  I've used Comodo at work to create Certificates for users wanting to send encrypted emails through Outlook.  These tend to last a year or two then need to be renewed.

 

You might try Adobe Acrobat to create your document and use your Wacoms to sign on a pdf instead of a word document.

I work in an organization and all of it is on site. The problem  is not a shared but the signature

I am trying to understand why on one computer it all runs and how I got on two computers a microsoft certified signature

Not interested in purchasing a new pad.

If I can't solve it I will look into the license.

Hi all

 

I found this post that explaining how to get the certify to take care of my problem

The problem solved there in the link is for VB use but works for what I needed.

There was a small difference in the location of the SELFCERT file location

here are the different paths that I found in different computers with office 2016 running on Windows 10

  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\OFFICE16
  • C:\Program Files \Microsoft Office\OFFICE16

Thanks to all that tried to help
