    Hi There,

    I have a question, perhaps someone can help me.

    I got a software, that uses fiddler to capture network traffic and decrypt the HTTPS. The only 2 files are there: fiddlercore4.dll and fiddlercore4.xml.

    The configuration has been made in such a way to use makecert.exe, however, the fiddler itself can use certenroll. what specifically should i change in the XML file to force it use certenroll instead of makecert? the windows 7 has issues with SHA256, and the generation of certificate fails all the time. However, if i use GUI version of fiddler, i could easily change between Makecert and Certenroll. Certenroll would work perfectly in such case.


    Thank you.

    Hi, Andy--

    Current versions of FiddlerCore will automatically fallback to CertEnroll on Windows 7 if makecert.exe isn't found. Alternatively, you can set 

        FiddlerApplication.Prefs.SetBoolPref("fiddler.certmaker.PreferCertEnroll", true);
