Hi Matthew,

The value that comes out of the certificate browser, so number 2. Just be aware that if copied straight out there will be a non-printable character that needs to be removed (don't recall if it's preceding of trailing).

Thanks.

Is the certificate browser you are referring to the MMC certificate snap-in?

In that case, it would be number 2 in the options above.

If it's the snap-in, its preceeding characters. These can be removed by deleting the first two characters and manually re-typing them.


If this is a common issue, perhaps a filter of non-ascii codes is appropriate on that field.
