Fiddler: Creation of interception certificate failed
This post is a direct solution from hyperlink – http://harachie.wordpress.com/2011/04/05/fiddler-creation-of-interception-certificate-failed/. I find myself doing it a couple of times every month, and keep googling. Instead I thought I’d have a copy of the post myself.
If you get the Fiddler error “
Unable to Generate Certificate
Creation of the interception certificate failed.
makecert.exe returned -1.
