Silently integrating a mshc into VS2010 help? Does it work?

I've used SHFB to build a msha/mshc that integrates into help with no issue.  Now I need to integrate it silently using my setup.  I've created a cab file out of my mshc and signed it.  I changed my msha to reference the cab file.  No matter what I try, the silent keyword appears to do nothing.  Using either the help lib manage launcher or the helplibmanager.exe directly, they both indicate success but nothing happens.  Attempting to to manually load it using the GUI, it shows me the dialog with the certificate info and asks me if it is ok.  I say yes, and then it says there was an exception.  This happens on 2 different systems.

Has anyone got this to work?

The Help Viewer SDK contains some information on using signed cabinet files.  You might check it for more information.
