The RequestStoreName property specifies the certificate store used to store the dummy certificate to which the private keys have been added, until a certificate server processes the request and responds with a PKCS 7. By default the "REQUEST" system store is used. If the default is not to be used, this property must be set to the store to be used before calls to createPKCS10/createFilePKCS10 and again before calls to acceptPKCS7/acceptFilePKCS7.

Currently, only system store names can be specified for this property.

Typically, modification of the RequestStoreName property is only performed in advanced applications.
