    Hi all,

    I'm having a bit of a problem with activation in that I can't seem to install the relevant certificate for oem slp. I can run the command:

    slmgr -ilc PATH_TO_CERT

    and it'll give me the prompt that states that the cert is installed correctly but after checking with SLIC_Toolkit, it doesn't show up and windows won't activate either.

    I've just tried DAZ loader 2.2.2 and that also seem to have the same problem.

    Does anyone know why?

    I've also checked out the file hash for the iso so I know it's a good image too.

    Thanks

    The OEMCERT is stored in a different location on Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2012 R2
    SLIC_Toolkit doesn't support this new path, resulting in mismatch
