Thumbprint error when pasting thumbprint into the Regression Suite Automation Tool (RSAT) configuration

You can get an error like this when you paste the thumbprint, from your new certificate, into the configuration tool.


The reason for this is that the certificate UI uses a Unicode enabled RichEdit control to show the value.

You can use a command prompt to list a thumbprint that is suitable for copy-n-paste.
Use "certutil -store my" for the machine certificates. The thumbprint can be located in the line that starts with "Cert Hash(sha1)".

Another workaround is to paste the thumbprint to a new Notepad file, save the txt file, reopen the text file and then copy the thumbprint from there.
