On a Windows Vista Service Pack 1 (SP1)-based or Windows Server 2008-based computer, you run the Encrypting File System (EFS) Wizard to create a self-signed certificate that is stored on a smart card. However, the EFS Wizard cannot read the self-signed certificate. Additionally, the EFS Wizard returns the following error message:
No valid certificates found
Note: The “More information” section provides more information about how to use the EFS Wizard.
