Installing Certificate:

When your certificate is issued you'll typically receive a file called entrustcert.crt, Save it on the server and from the same directory run:

         C:\>certreq -accept store_acmesafe_com.cer

This will install the cert in the Windows certificate store and it will be available in IIS , MMC , Exchange , LDAP/Active Directory , Terminal Services and those products that make use of the Windows certificate store.
