I have my Windows 2008 Certificate Services CA setup and my Web enrollment for internal use only.
When I go to http://myserver/certsrv my windows XP workstations request and receive a certificate just fine.
however, my windows 7 workstations come up with a message that says, "In order to complete certificate enrollment, the Web site for the CA must be configured to use HTTPS Authentication.
How do I do this last step?

Put https://servername/certsrv in your browser on the Win 7 machines.  This is assuming that you have bound port 443 to the appropriate certificate on the issuing CA.

The advice in the question referenced above is very bad. It instructs you to allow Active X unsafe for scripting to run on your CA. Don't do it!

In a previous question you asked about auto-enrollment. Why are your getting certs manually on each machine?
