I created a self-signed certificate on Windows 7 and deployed a web site with this certificate just to try it out.
When I configured the HTTPS endpoint and visit the site with HTTPS protocol, I get the "not a trusted cert" error as expected.
Then I try to make this cert a trusted one on my machine with following PowerShell code:
$cert = (get-item cert:\CurrentUser\MY\1D5B3DEF207B70C7426953315A8C06EB38E50FAA) $store = get-item cert:\LocalMachine\Root $store.Open("ReadWrite") $store.Add($cert) $store.Close()
It didn't work, I still get the same error. Then, I delete it from trusted certs list and tried with the below code again:
$cert = New-Object System.Security.Cryptography.X509Certificates.X509Certificate2("c:\certs\foo2.foo.cc.cer") $store = get-item cert:\LocalMachine\Root $store.Open("ReadWrite") $store.Add($cert) $store.Close()
That didn't work either. What am I missing?
