  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

    Why it is missed? How to get it?

    P.S. Using Windows Vista Business

    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.
