"C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v6.0A\Bin\makecert" -r -sk %computername% -sr LocalMachine -ss My -n CN=%computername%,CN=localhost,CN=%computername% c:\localhost.cer

:: Make certificate trusted by importing localhost.cer to store Computer/Trusted People
certutil -addstore TrustedPeople c:\localhost.cer

:: Delete certificate file c:\localhost.cer
del c:\localhost.cer

@echo off

for /F "tokens=3" %%x in ('certutil -store My %computername% ^| find "Cert Hash(sha1):"') do (set Hash=%%x)
