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.

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

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

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

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?

The web pages do not require Longhorn server. You can install them on
Windows 2003 server.

no need to purchase the longhorn as you can use the pages from the Beta
longhorn..but you will need to install the beta to get those
files....silly
why can't Microsoft supply the download

the beta version is free download

I have tested the solution and it works.

too soon. I still have issue - I am able to apply install the cert on
vista ie7 with the 2008 beta3 web enrollment page on win2k3 sp2
but.....i cannot see the certificate appearing under "choose a digital
certificate" pop up dialog box in ie7, the box is empty.

In the IE7 Certificates dialog box, it shows the "digital certificate"
that was
installed under "Personal"; and the root certificate (certnew.cer) to
the "Trusted Root Certification".

no issue with ie6/7 on XP-SP2...may be I miss some step....
