Posted on 2007-08-02

I have a 2000 where I'm getting the error Certification store full. I am trying to import a new .crl.

where I'm loading the crl:
Intermediate Certification Authorities\Local Computer

the error:
"the import failed because the store was read-only, the store was full, or the store did not open correctly."

I removed one and added a different one. so I know it's nor read-only or did not open correct. it's full. How do I increase the size?
