When you specify the p12 file, the signature doesn't have to be valid.
However, if you install the certificate, it must be signed properly and
the signature must be valid.
Also, when using the windows cert store, OpenSSL only allows SHA1, MD5
and MD5_SHA1 algorithms.

See the e_capi.c file in the OpenSSL source, look for
