How To : Microsoft : Windows 7 : Certificate : Permissions

Managing Permissions for Certificates on Windows 7

While doing development on a Windows 7 system you may need to use a certificate.  If you use a certificate, you will need to assign yourself the correct permissions to use it. In the below example I assign permission to the Network Service account and myself. Previously you would have use the WSE 3.0 Certificates Tool to assign permissions.  Now you can use MMC Certificates Snap In

After you run MMC >Certificates Add In

  1. Right click on the Certificate > All Tasks > Manage Private Keys
  2. Assign Network Service and Your self permissions to the certificate
