To set up certification authority Web enrollment support

  1. Log on to the system as an Administrator, or if you have Active Directory, log on to the system as a Domain Administrator.
  2. Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
  3. Double-click Add/Remove Programs and then click Add/Remove Windows Components.
  4. In the Windows Components wizard, select the Certificate Services check box. A dialog box will appear to inform you that the computer cannot be renamed, and the computer cannot be joined to or removed from a domain after Certificate Services is installed. Click Yes, and then click Details.
  5. Clear the Certificate Services CA check box, verify that the Certificate Services Web Enrollment Support check box remains selected, and then click OK. Click Next.
  6. In Computer Name, type in the name of the computer on which the certification authority (CA) is installed, the CA for which these Web enrollment pages will be used. The name of the CA will appear in the list. Click Next.
  7. If the World Wide Web Publishing Service is running, the system will request that you stop the service before proceeding with the installation. Click OK.
  8. If prompted, type in the path to the Certificate Services installation files.


  • Internet Information Services (IIS) must be installed on the server before you install the CA Web enrollment pages.
  • CA Web enrollment pages are installed by default when you set up Certificate Services on a server that has IIS installed. This procedure is necessary only if you want to install the CA Web enrollment pages on a server that is separate from the server on which the CA is installed.
  • If you changed the default option during Certificate Services setup and did not install the CA Web enrollment pages on the CA server, you can run certutil -vroot from the command prompt on the CA to install the Web enrollment pages.
  • Certain Windows components require configuration before thay can be used. If you installed one or more of these components, but did not configure them, when you click Add/Remove Windows Components, a list of components that need to be configured is displayed. To start the Windows Components wizard, click Components.
