Hi,

Thanks!

Hello and welcome to Advanced Installer forums,

Unfortunately, this improvement has not yet been implemented.

I have increased its priority and hopefully it will be implemented in a future version of Advanced Installer.

Thank you for your understanding.

Good day

Is there a way where I can create a self-signed certificate? I'm making an installer for a web application and I need a https for the bindings. During installation, it always prompts an error regarding SSL certificate.

Thank you.

Hello,

Unfortunately, we do not have predefined support for creating self-signed certificates (you can not create a self-signed certificate from within Advanced Installer).

However, you can create your own certificate and then use the "Install PFX certificate from the package" option from "IIS" page --> "Bindings/SSL" --> under "SSL Certificate (HTTPS Bindings)" section.

For instance, you can create the self-signed certificate using IIS manager.

Hope this helps.

It would be a nice feature. In the meantime the best you can do is a custom powershell action using New-SelfSignedCertificate cmdlet.

Hello,

Thank you for your followup on this and for sharing your solution with us.

From what I can see, this might be under our development team's radar, as it has the "work_in_progress" label.

I will update this thread as soon as this improvement will be implemented in Advanced Installer.
