We came to the conclusion that the certificate stopped working as it does not work anymore on the old system either. So we keep working on "corrupted" certificates that may never ever work.
I have this annoying issue which worked with the exact same way for multiple other users before but all of a sudden no longer works for this user. Short backstory. We migrate people from Windows 7 to Windows 10. They worked on a virtual floating machine and now get a laptop to work with windows 10.
So here is how I did it.
- I went to IE -> Internet Options -> Content -> Certificates.
- Selected all the certificates he has under Personal even tho I tried it even with doing it certificate per certificate for him.
- Yes, export the private key
- Personal Information Exchange – PKCS #12 (.PFX)
- Tried both with and without "Export all extended properties" but usually without
- Set the password to "Password2020" (I know very creative but whatever)
- Select a folder on Desktop as path
Now I move it to the new laptop. Going to the Certificates window again. Now I do:
- Select the certificate
- Enter the password
- Select "Automatically select the certificate store based on the type of certificate"
All the unimportant and expired certificates go to where they belonged. However all the valid certificates are under other people.
Is there any way to prevent this or anything that I can try to fix this issue? Would it work to remove them somehow? Because for some reason I cannot remove the certificates under other people. When I open IE with admin rights it doesn't show me any certificates. :C
With the words of Freddy Mercury "I'm going slightly mad".
While looking online I found the Certmgr.msc and had a look arround in there. Now here comes the crazy part. All the certificates I imported over and over again are inside of the Personal and some were also under other people. However the certificates still don't all show up. Any more ideas?
