Hi, I am trying to install a SSL certificate for Remote Desktop. I installed
the Microsoft’s Certificate Services and since the computer is not part of a
domain, the only option I had to install the CA as is stand alone. So
everything went fine that.

However, when I’m in the certificate mmc and I try to request new
certificate, I do not have the choice “request certificate”. The choice does
not exist.

I have set this up on my domain and have no problems, however on this stand
alone computer, I am unable to request certificate and get the SSL installed
for Remote Desktop.
