Windows XP SP2 Support Tools and httpcfg.exe

Filed under: Microsoft,technology — Larry Parker @ 11:51 am

I’m doing some work with WCF and SSL and need to configure a port with an SSL certificate on the server.  To do this, you need the httpcfg.exe utility, available with Windows XP SP2 Support Tools.

So I downloaded it, installed it, looked in C:\Program Files\Support Tools, and no httpcfg.exe.  What’s the deal?

It turns out that when you install Support Tools, you need to select Optional Tools from the setup wizard (it’s disabled by default).


So just make sure you select the feature to get httpcfg.exe (and the other optional tools).  Hope this helps.
