Certdog Quick Windows Installation

If you want to get up and running quickly - just go through the steps listed below

Ensure you have the .NET v4.8 runtime installed and have the required Administrator privileges

You can install this on Windows Server 2016 or 2019 and also Windows 10. Although you can install the ADCS Driver component (to interface to a Microsoft CA) it will not function as it requires server based components. All other functions, including the internal CA and REST API will work fine

More detailed information can be found here - including how to verify the download and account details etc. It is recommended that you read through this (when you have more time) and before you install certdog on any production systems
