Creating a CSR using certreq.exe

Hello Experts,
Thanks in advance for your assistance.

I am trying to implement a Safenet LUNA HSM to store our SSL certificates and need to use certreq.exe in order to  generate a CSR.  I am following instructions that I found on the Safenet website for IIS deployment.  http://www2.safenet-inc.com/AWS-guides/Microsoft_Internet_Information_Services_Integration_guide_RevD.pdf

The instructions suggest I create a request.inf file with the key request info and then run certreq.exe to generate a CSR.  The request.inf info is listed here.

[Version]
Signature= "$Windows NT$"
[NewRequest]
Subject = "C=US,CN=example.com,O=Company,OU=HSM,L=City,S=State"
Exportable = TRUE
HashAlgorithm = SHA256
KeyAlgorithm = RSA
KeyLength = 4096
ProviderName = "Safenet Key Storage Provider"
KeyUsage = 0xf0
MachineKeySet = True
[EnhancedKeyUsageExtension]
OID=1.3.6.1.5.5.7.3.1

The problem I am experiencing is that when I run "certreq.exe -new request.inf request.req" I get an error that says "Invalid provider specified. 0x80090013"

Does anyone know if there is something else I need to have in my .inf file?  Or is there list of acceptable ProviderNames?

Thanks very much for your help!

Provider name is a specific parameter for windows cryptography and not from whom you are getting the certificate.
