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 ?

    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
