Hello,
I've generated a CA then a wildcard certificate. The CA was well installed in the Windows Cert Store and in the FireFox Cert Store.
But when I visite the SSL Site that use the wildcard certificate, only FireFox and OpenSSL are happy, Internet Explorer and Chrome (windows Cert Store) does not want to display the ssl site, and do not ask for an exception.

When displaying the certificate in Windows built-in certificate viewer, there is the error "could not check certificate's roles" (in French: Tous les rôles prévus de ce certificat n'ont pas pu être vérifiés").

Reply to me and I'll send you the Certificate.

Regards
cyrille

    Please send both certificates, but not the keys to <christian@hohnstaedt.de>

    Solved by not setting any "extended key usage"s and not setting the critical flag of the "key usage".
