This is urgent, but not too difficult.  

I need to write a vbscript that will automatically install certificates in windows 2000/XP.  the files are .pfx, and I need a script that will install them without any user interaction.  

I really don't need the full script, just the command that will allow me to import these certs.  


thanks.

I never tried this myself, but the contents of this article might help.

no, i dont have a problem creating the certificate.  this web page seems to be talking only about creating them from the server.   i need to import them with a script.  

maybe this will help.   the certs and the script will be sent to clients in the field.  the certs enable the clients to connect to our VPN server, and the certs are made from the VPN server.  they are already made and are in the .pfx format.


please help!
