Why not? That said, I don't think there's any place in the IDE you can just browse to the certificate file and have it work. You'll probably have to author a custom action.

I was able to install the Root Certificate using it as a Prerequisite. I created a Prerequisite for my Entrust Root Certificate with the 2 files, certmgr.exe and the .cer certificate file and then I passed the following command line parameter to install the certificate, /c /add L1croot.cer /s /r localMachine AuthRoot and I trigger the install of the Certificate based on the presence of the certificate in the registry, in my case the Trusted Root Certificate registry entry is HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SystemCertificates\AuthRoot\Certificates\Certificate GUID. I then addes this to the Redistributables list and then to my Prerequisites List and it worked perfectly
