Windows XP Home.
When I try to import pfx file into Internet Explorer ( Tools/Internet
options/Content/certificates/Import button , at the end IE says " The private
key that you are importing might require a cryptographic service provider
that is not installed on your system"

Pfx file , can be imported into Mozilla firefox 2.0
Thanks

The .pfx file that you are importing may not have been created on a MS
Windows system; do you know how it was created or who created it? Secondly,
does it work, namely have you tried using the imported certificate yet? If
it works ignore the message.

Thanks Allan, the certificate was created using Firefox 2.0 but , the first
certificate ( original certificate ) was installed in IE , I could not renove
this certificate using IE when I exported the certificate to Firefox , the
certificate was renoved using Firefox and it works perfectly.

In other pc ( XP Pro SP2 ) I can request and download a certificate using
Firefox , make de backup( p12 ) and imported p12 file into IE 7

Thanks a lot
