I’ve been working on some cool stuff with Hyper-V Replica across untrusted domains this week. As part of that I needed to get hold of the makecert.exe utility so that you can create your own SSL certificates. I had some challenges finding it and finally located it. Here’s what I did.
Download the Microsoft Windows SDK for Windows 7 from here http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=8279
Then run the installer and select the .Net Framework Tools ONLY
Once it’s installed, you can find the makecert.exe program under the C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v7.1\Bin\ folder
Hope that helps.
