Self Signed Certificate doesn't show after being deleted and reinstalled from MMC Certificates Snap-in
Posted on 2013-11-06
I created a self-signed certificate for use with a VPN web portal that will be used by our employees. It worked fine. Now I am creating documentation and instructions with screenshots for users to install the certificate on their PC.
On two different machines, one XP and one Windows 7, I had successfully installed the certificate. Then I deleted the certificate from the MMC Certificates Snap-In so that I could go through the process again, and take screenshots, etc. Now, when I install it again, it says successfully completed but I don't see the certificate in the snap-in. Oddly enough, it seems to be working even though I don't see it in the snap-in. I have restarted the MMC, the browser, and the whole PC.
What's up with that?
