Can't install certificate permanantly RRS feed

  • Question

  • Not sure this is the right forum for this, but couldn't find a better option.

    I have a Visual Studio app that uses the PayPal API. They require a certificate, which I have. I've had this working for many years on another computer, but I just migrated to a new computer. The code I use to install the certificate is:

    WinHttpCertCfg -i MyCert.p12 -p MyPassword-c LOCAL_MACHINE\my -a "NETWORK SERVICE"

    When I run this in an admin CMD window, I'm able to successfully call the API and retrieve data. But, as soon as I reboot the computer, I have to re-run the CMD file, otherwise I get a "Could not create SSL/TLS secure channel." 

    Anyone know how can I install the certificate so that I don't have to keep re-installing it?

    Thanks,
    Bert

  • Already posted to the developer.paypal.com forum - they just respond that it's a coding issue - which it isn't.

    This is sort of a last-resort post!
