I have a PFX file (
.p12) that is needed to allow access a remote web page. Double-clicking on this file and following a few prompts easily adds the certificate to a personal store, but this only works for the currently logged-in user.
I want to install the certificate in such a way that it will be usable by all users of a particular windows server.
What I've tried so far:
- Use the MMC to add a Certificates snap-in for "Computer account", import the cert under the "Personal" store. This didn't work.
- Using certmgr.exe to add a cert to the "localMachine" store, but discovered that this tool doesn't actually exist on a typical Windows install. Do I really have in install Visual Studio in order to import a client certificate?
- Followed some instructions for Group Policy found here, but didn't get very far (no Trusted Publishers object). I was only looking at Local Group Policy, though.
