Windows 7 VPN IKEv2 connection problem

Hi, I am trying to create a VPN connection using IKEv2 to Windows 2008 R2 Routing and Remote Access Server.

I have setup the server and can successfully connect using a standard PPTP. However when trying with IKEv2 I get:

Error 13819: Invalid cerificate type.

I have been unsucessful so far to find much help on this issue. I understand it is possibly due to either the client not having a certificate or the server certificate is incorrect? Not sure which.

Either way I'm not exactly 100% sure how I create the right certificate for the client? I have Certificate Authority installed on the server. But can not find instructions on how to create the correct certificate for this scenerio, if indeed that is what I need to do?

Any help appreciated.
