Code Signing Certificate with Excel 2016 - VBA and Macros



I am attempting to sign VBA code / Marcos in Microsoft Excel 2016.


I have purchased a GoDaddy Code Signing Certificate and installed it according to these instructions:


However, Excel does not seem to recognize that a valid certificate is installed. When attempting to sign using the certificate while in the VBA code using Tools -> Digital Signature, I receive the message ‘No usable signing certificates are available. Please insert your smart card, or contact your administrator to obtain a signing certificate.’


I am running on Windows Server 2012 R2 and using Excel 16.0.4639.1000 64-bit

Any suggestions on why Excel is not showing me the code signing certificate as an option to use?

Thank you.
