Problem with MSCEP and solution

Hi all:

Yesterday I had a problem with the automatic enrollment of digital certificates. I didn't find any clue in this forum and this is the reason for this post, to share my experience for everybody.

The first problem was I installed the CEPSetup from de W2003 resource kit and I get an error probably because the language of the OS (spanish) was different from the language (english) of the add-on.The error message was not clear enough.

I tryed later with the same module but I stoped the CA service and It was succesfuly installed, but I can't get a digital certificate from the client because I got the message error 42 (unexpected end of header in the log) (event ID 39 from SCEP Add-on in the MS event viewer).

The http://systemname/certsrv/mscep/mscep.dll looked fine but the process was unsuccsefull.

Today I found a new CEPSetup from MS (version 4.71.1015.0) and I installed over the previous one, and this time the automatic enrollment it's working!

I hope this help to somebody else. Please rate the post if it does.
