Unable to Import Certificate PFX for my WFA RRS feed

  • Question

  • I made Windows Form Application in Visual C#. It generated a file with name applicationname_TemporaryKey.pfx 

    After this i had to reinstall Windows (Windows 8) on the PC on which i use to develop this application in Visual Studio.

    After installing Windows and Visual Studio (2012) i tried to debug the project. It shows this error :

    • Cannot import the following key file: applicationname_TemporaryKey.pfx. The key file may be password protected. To correct this, try to import the certificate again or manually install the certificate to the Strong Name CSP with the following key container name: VS_KEY_8F93C03FAFE11BF4 applicationname

    And this one:

    • Importing key file "applicationname_TemporaryKey.pfx" was canceled. Royal Hotel

    I tried to Import the certificate. It asks me for password since certificate is password protected. I dont know the password and i want to import the certificate. Please Help.

    Thanks in advance.
