I have 3 PKI server Windows 2008 R2
1 root Offline
2 Sub Enterprise
I publish all AIA and CDP in a web site + Ldap

When a client (in Workgroup) open a Web Site with a certificate issue by my PKI
The client got the error message that the Certificate root is not trusted (at this time is normal because the certificate root is not in the certificate store of the client)
With a XP Windows 2008 r2 Server, on IE I click on the error and open the certificate root ca  
I select in the chain the root PKI certificate and i have the option to install the certificate in the certificate store of the client

But i my client is Vista or Win 7, I click on the error and open the certificate root CA (same as XP and 2008) but when I want to install the certificate this option is not there
I search but I did not find anything how i can install automatically the trusted root certificate in the certificate store of the client, (I have this option on XP and 2008)

I found the solution

On Vista and Windows 7, you must Open IE with the Run as Adminirator
When IE is open as Administrator, When you select the root Certificate the option to Install the Certificate is there
