Install Your Intermediate and Root Certificate
- Right-click the Intermediate Certification Authorities folder. Click All Tasks > Import.
- When the Certificate Import Wizard appears, click Next.
- Locate the intermediate certificate(s) you saved and click Next.
- When the Wizard is completed click Finish. The GlobalSign Intermediate Certificate will now be installed.
Note: If you are installing an ExtendedSSL (EVSSL) you will also need to install the cross certificate with the appropriate Intermediate certificate. Both certificates should be installed in the Intermediate Certification Authorities folder.
Windows will normally have the GlobalSign root certificate installed by default. However, if you need to install the root certificate, follow the instructions as above, but import the root certificate into the Trusted Root Certification Authorities folder in the MMC.
