Sorry about the HTML, I just complained about someone sending me TNEF attachments just a second ago too...

I know that such an animal exists out there as I have previously locally generated a private key while simultaneously sending a CSR to an external PKI. I looked a bit at their source and it looked like it referenced something called "XEnroll", which probably means that this could only be done from within some kind of specially designed web page, not through a local application.

Your wizard is still "the best thing out there" to me, will definately be using it for future client CSR's.

As OpenVPN is reported to support certificates that are stored in the
Windows Certificate Store, is there any intent to have "My Certificate
Wizard" support the creation of certificates directly in the store?

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?

BTW, please don't send HTML mail to the list.
