"Request New Certificate" is missed from Certificates snap-in

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Security' started by Viktor Jevdokimov, Jul 10, 2007.

  1. Hello,

    I use Windows Vista Business OEM (genuine). Windows Vista Help has a
    statement, that using Certificates snap-in in MMC one can right-click under
    "Current User\Personal" folder and select "All Tasks > Request New
    Certificate" to request a new certificate and so on.
    But it is missed!
    Checked with Administrator user, with the user in Administrators group - no
    way. I can't find the command and can't make a request to get a new
    certificate.

    Why it is missed? How to get it?

    P.S. Using Windows Vista Business

    Is your computer joined to a domain?

    Then you will not see it. The option is only available for domain joined
    machines. You still can do a custom request using advanced operations.
    Then submit the request at the Certification Authority console or the
    Certificate Services web page.
