Cannot start Server Certificate Wizard in IIS

Posted on 2011-03-10

The button to create a server certificate is grayed out so I cannot start the wizard to initiate a Certificate request.

There is a certificate for this particular web site but it was not issued by a trusted authority so I want to get a valid one and install it.  Don't know if that has anything to do with the button grayed out or not.  I've tried registering the dll for xenroll, the ocx's for certwiz and certmap with no change.

Help would be appreciated

Maybe you've already tried it, but can you re-install it?
