    got it to work

    thanks for the responses

    the manual method worked. i also had to import the homeseer authority cert into by browser as well. ie 6 sp1 seems to need it.

    mnsandler,

    If you are still having problems, I would be happy to create a new cert for you on my XP system.

    Just send me via PM the parameters you would want to use and your e-mail or PM, I will create it and e-mail or PM it back to you.

    Sorry I haven't seen this error but like Rene I don't have a W2k box to try this on. I've only done the commands on WXP SP2 and W2k3 SP1. You might want to verify that the files(.cer and .pvk) are not zero length files and that makecert is not returning errors. Based on what you are reporting it would appear that the certs are not being created properly.

    Also is there any reason that you are hanging with SP3??

    mnsandler,

    I know that the automate procedure works under Windows XP, as I have used it myself, but I don't know if it W2K compatible, maybe MathewB can try it, as unfortunately all of my computers are either XP Prof. or 2003 server.

    But, I am pretty sure you can use the manual procedure, as it was tested early on the development by Karls.

    Please let us know your results, and if there is anything else I can do.

    having problems exporting the cert

    when using the automated installation" process i get thefollowing error after the "cert2pfx homeseer.cer homeseer.pvk homeseer.pfx" cmd

    The following error has occurred:
    Org.Mentalis.Security.Certificates.CertificateException: Could not export the ce
    rtificate store.
    at Org.Mentalis.Security.Certificates.CertificateStore.GetPfxBu ffer(String pa
    ssword, Boolean exportPrivateKeys)
    at Org.Mentalis.Security.Certificates.Certificate.ToPfxFile(Str ing filename,
    String password, Boolean withPrivateKeys, Boolean withParents)
    at Cert2Pfx.Main(String[] args)



    if i use the manual process, i can export the key, but it does not seem to work in H
    S2 (ie https does not seem to work)

    btw. the test key given with the 1996ssl update does work.

    i am using windows 2000 server with sp3.
Working...
