    With Windows Vista I am unable to do http://servername/certsrv.

    I am attempting to do a certsrv on a Windows Vista Machine with Internet
    Explorer 7 and I get to request a certificate. Then it says downloading
    activeX and it gets stuck there. How do I get past this point so I can
    create a certificate on a Vista Machine.

    or use the MMC rather than the web enrollment pages.

    Paul,
    I saw that article but it appears you need to have Windows Server Longhorn
    for these directions. But I don't have windows server Longhorn. Unless I am
    misreading the directions. Plus the reason I am doing it this way is because
    my PC is not on a domain plus I have never retrieved a certificate using MMC.

    What type of certificate are you trying to request. If
    the private key is exportable, you could request from an
    XP/2000/2003 box, export to PFX, and then import into
    your Vista client.

    Unfortunately, the fix does require access to the
    Longhorn ADCS pages. Only these pages enable the
    CertEnroll control that you need for Vista

    Brian,
    I am trying to get a User Certificate on my Vista Client.
    Where can I get the steps to export the Certificate. I am assuming I would
    need to export them from my server and import them onto my Vista Box?

    Is there a place where I can get the Longhorn ADCS pages?
