My Certificate Wizard creates keys and certificate requests, not
certificates. You still need the involvement of a separate CA -- and that
CA can feed those certificates back in a format that Windows will
easily import.

Doing more than that (ie. importing the generated private keys into the
certificate store) would involve writing code. You volunteering?
