    The path to makecert.exe is invalid

    aLTeReGo

      When Installing APM Beta 2 I'm receiving the error "An error occurred configuring APM Job Engine Plugin: The path to makecert.exe is invalid. Please check the ConfigurationWizard.log file for details." when running through the configuration wizard.


      I've searched the entire hard drive and I don't have "makecert.exe" anywhere. If I remember correctly this use to be part of the Windows Resource Kit.


      Here are the last few lines in my ConfigurationWizard.log file in case this helps.
