I have a certificate file ( .cer)   I want to create and install a pfx file from this.  

When I use the "Certificate Export wizard" the option for PFX is greyed out.

PFX files are used to export certificates WITH personal keys. Cer WITHOUT personal keys.
So, when you import a Cer, you don't have a personal key and so you can not create a PFX.

I create the keys from SQL server 2005.  I create the certificate and a Private Key.  

Then export these as two different files.  Bacially I want to install this Private Key on my machine.
