It seems that my version of Windows 7 (SP1, with PowerShell 4) lacks the certutil command. I tried to look for a way to add it manually but failed. Any ideas on how to do it?

UPDATE Thanks to comments, I was able to locate the certutil.exe file in \System32\ but I can't execute any certutil command.

Here's a snapshot of I have:

  • Which Win7 edition do you use? Home Premium or Pro/Ultimate? Maybe the Home misses it. – magicandre1981 Nov 13 '15 at 5:39
  • Actually it's the Ultimate 'distro' of Windows 7. – ahmed Nov 13 '15 at 7:32

    Windows 7 Home Premium has it: C:\Windows\System32\certutil.exe – DavidPostill Nov 13 '15 at 13:53

    I checked my Win7 ultimate VM and also has the file: "C:\Windows\System32\certutil.exe" – magicandre1981 Nov 13 '15 at 18:14

    run it from a normal cmd.exe and not Powershell – magicandre1981 Nov 14 '15 at 8:00

Under powershell you must prefix the executable name by .\.

Try with .\certutil.exe or use the old school cmd instead of powershell.
