Smart Card Authentication via ssh

I am having issues with Smart Card Authentication via SSH. I am getting the following error:

There was an error creating the signature during public-key authentication: Internal Cryptoki (PKCS#11) error in file Pkcs11Private.cpp on line 460: CKR_MECHANISM_INVALIV(0x00000070)

In my identity or certificate file i am using the following line:

pkcs11key::prov=C:\Program Files\ActivIdentity\ActivClient\acpkcs211.dll
and i get a Fingerprint hash.

I am using SecureCRT Version 7.3.4 (x64 build 839), ActivClient x64 (, connecting to a Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 server. I am suspecting SecureCRT because i also have Attachmate Reflection X on the same machine and can use it with the Activclient to connect to the server using my smart card.

We need this working to conform to our security guidelines, we have gotten it working with RelectionX, but all of our Administrators like SecureCRT much better (that is why we purchased it).
