Windows 7 and IE9 certificate problem

Hi there,

We are migrating our XP machines to Windows 7.During this phase i faced with not working certificates.

There is a central bank web site and our users use it for some purpose.To be able see page you need certificate which they create for you after request.

- On Windows XP works fine . Just double click on cert and login page appears.

What i tried :

- Downloaded root certificate and requested for new , installed and still nothing.
- Win firewall is off.

Any idea ?

Did u check compatbility of IE ? Sames as XP before .? Did u try compatibility mode ?
Also u cam try export the bank site cert form XP and import to win7

Well , guys from company said that it would not be any problem.Tried compability mode but nothing.
exporting it dont think it would do a solution since we gave diffrenet machines to users and certificates works on the same machine where did request sent.

Well, i had to open mmc ,add certificates - current user.
add manually trusted root CA and then personal cert.
thats it...

its solved , firewall was dropping some packet related with site.

Also notice that importing cert at Win 7 is different then Win xp
