      SmartCard ATR: 3B7F960000EA5CBDF07AEB6541894B0400000000

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      When calling KeyStore.load() with SunMSCAPI crypto provider (instantiated by getting a keystore with name "Windows-MY"), Java shows an unnecessary error window, if you use a Win CryptAPI-compatible smartcard.

      Sorry, I use a localized version of Java, so the strings reported here are just approximate.

      The window is titled "Insert a smartcard". It has 3 buttons (OK (disabled), Cancel (enabled), Details (enabled)).

      When clicking on details, a more elaborate view is presented. There is a SC reader icon with a "stop sign" drawn over it signaling some error. Next to this icon, the smartcard name is written (correctly), and beneath it there is a paragraph saying: "A smartcard has been detected. But another one is required for the requested operation. There is probably no driver for the smartcard used, or the required certificate hasn't been found".

      If I cancel this window, the load operation proceeds and finishes successfully (despite what would the error window suggest).

      Applications affected by this bug:
      * Libreoffice (in document signing)
      * JSignPDF ( https://github.com/kwart/jsignpdf )

      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      KeyStore ks = KeyStore.getInstance("Windows-MY");
      ks.load(null, null);
      System.out.println(Collections.list(ks.aliases()).toString());


      REPRODUCIBILITY :
      This bug can be reproduced always.
