~ Web Certificate enrollment with Windows 2003 server Fails from some clients

Discussion in 'Security Software' started by Marlin Munrow, Feb 23, 2004.

  1. Can anyone assist here ?

    If I point my browsers at

    https://certsrv.mydomain.com/certsrv
    (a 2003 DC, with IIS and Enterprise root CA installed)

    I get several steps in

    Request a certificate
    User Certificate

    The page displays "downloading activex control" then
    an error

    "The proper version of the ActiveX control failed to download and
    install. You may not have sufficient permissions. Please ask your
    system administrator for assistance."

    I've searched MS Support and only found
    http://www.microsoft.com/technet/treeview/default.asp?url=/technet/prodtechnol/windowsserver2003/proddocs/entserver/sag_CM_Troubleshoot.asp
    that looks relevant but doesnt help.

    This looks to me like a versioning issue - my xenroll.dll file is an
    older version than that on my 2003 server.

    I've tried updating the clients but still get the same error.

    Any thoughts ?

    thanks in advance

    You must be a local administrator of the computer to download the Active
    X control, in addition, ensure that the CA Server URL is added to the
    Local Intranet Sites, and that the Site allows the download and
    installation of Active X controls.
