Easy way to export all certificates

Posted on 2014-03-20

We are migrating PCs from Windows XP to Windows 7. As part of this process, I'd like to find a way to easily export all of the certificates in Windows XP so I can re-import them after Windows 7 is installed.

certmgr.msc will allow exporting, but I don't see a way to do it for all certificates. Is there an easier way to do this?

I'd love to hear about creative ideas.

This could be scripted using a bat file.  This may still require user interaction if any keys are protected by a pin.  If you need machine certs then remove the '-user' portion.

echo off
setlocal

FOR /F "Tokens=1,2 delims=:" %%1 IN ('certutil -user -store my ^| findstr /i /c:"Serial Number"') DO (
certutil -user -p PASSPHRASE -exportpfx my %%1 c:\PATH\%username%_%%1.pfx
)
