Yes, example.com would be different from *.example.com.
To create the CSR for the wildcard cert, I'd use certreq, generating an INF file with the wildcard subject.
The wildcards I've used in the past, however, haven't seen able to bridge more than one level in the heirarchy.  (So, for example, *.example.com would be okay with host one.example.com, but I'd get a certificate error contacting host.one.example.com.)

we generate a request for *.example.com. and now when we use it have certificate error on example.com and all is ok with subdomains.   https://some.example.com works ok and https://example.com with certificate error.

*wince*  Yes, that meshes with what I've seen with wildcard certificates as well.  example.com doesn't match the rule established by *.example.com...  You'd need a 'not-wildcard' for example.com.

If it HAS to be on the same port, the only solution I've found has been to add a second IP address to the same server, and bind that IP address with the certificate to 443 for the one website that requires the not-wildcard certificate.

i solve the problem using another port, and with sub domain, and redirect parent domain (without secure connection) to child domain (with ssl)
