Create and Install Temp Certs in WCF for Msg Security During Dev

In my last post on WCF, there is a point in the videos where you will get errors creating endpoints because they create identities expecting certificates.

I mentioned that at the end of the blog.  However, I decided this link and instructions were good and wanted to point it out.

Edit:

(oh and make sure you run your VS cmd line as administrator or you will get this error :Save encoded certificate to store failed => 0x5 (5)     (Vista/Windows 7))

Edit again:

Note this comment as well:

Note: If FindPrivateKey is not on your machine, download the WCF samples, including the FindPrivateKey tool, at http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=2611A6FF-FD2D-4F5B-A672-C002F1C09CCD&displaylang=en
