I have submitted a certificate request to my windows standalone-CA, I already issued the certificate by approving the pending request, but I dont know ow to export the .cer file from the CA


If you right click on the certificate in the Issued Certificates section of the MMC, you can select All Tasks and then Export Binary Data.

From the Columns that contain binary data: dropdown select Binary Certificate. On the Export options choose Save binary data to a file.
