I have I have some application that build in Appveyor by custom build script:

    - cmd: python ./ {some parameters}

and when I'm trying to sign my exe files I receive error:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\bin\10.0.16299.0\x64\signtool.exe sign /tr /td sha256 /fd sha256 /a .\Publish\Build\abyss.exe
SignTool Error: No certificates were found that met all the given criteria.

Currently, files are signed using a USB cryptographic token (Sectigo (Comodo) Extended Validation Code Signing Certificate), which is connected to one of the servers.
The operation of this e-token is carried out through the SafeNet authentication client program, which blocks the operation of the e-token when the user connects to the server via RDP. There is also no way to back up the certificate as the private key is not exported (lack of additional security).

How do I use a certificate to sign my files?
