I have a web service that uses a self-signed certificate, so I need to install the certificate as a Trusted Root so that I can avoid all the security errors that having a self-signed certificate brings with it.
Using Windows 7, I'm going to:
Start > Internet Explorer > Run as Administrator > Tools > Internet Options > Content > Certificates > Trusted Root Certification Authorities > Import > (select file) > Next > OK, and Windows reports
However, the import is NOT successful. The certificate does not show in the list of trusted roots, and certificate errors still show up.
If I import the certificate into the Trusted Publishers container, it imports correctly, but this does not solve my security errors.
