  • What cert store will it use?

    • This is perhaps not a question but a comment.
      
      I was trying to compare two certs with this but it was not finding the thumbprints and I confirmed they were on the mmc on the user store.
      
      The script is requesting to run with admin rights, therefore I thought it wouldn't be using the user store but the machine store, so I had to delete the certs and re-import them on the machine store.
      
      It found them after that so I think this is rather for the machine store due to the privilege elevation.
      
      Great tool. Thank you very much.
