Install a Certificate to the Trusted Root Certificate Authorities

You wish to install a certificate into the Trusted Root Certification Authorities location using PDQ Deploy.

The following command will install the <certname>.cer file into the local system's root certificate store.

certutil.exe -addstore root \\UNCpath\certname.cer

You will need to change the UNC path to the certificate file.

For PDQ Deploy with an Enterprise license, you can use a Command Step instead of the standard Install Step and paste the command. If you are running PDQ Deploy in Free mode, create a .bat file with the same command and use an Install Step (referenced in Install File field).
