i've become highly sceptic of the certs.pem "roll methodology"...

does anyone out there know how, perhaps even in LINUX, to create a certs.pem file from a authrootstl.cab file (or the authroot.stl file that the .cab contains)?


the current "roll method" relies HEAVILY on rootsupd.exe and i'm getting nearly half a dozen of these files, all different depending on just "how" i update the OS rolling the .pem... even Microsoft's own "Windows Update" site is pushing me different rootsupd.exe files !!!... AutoPatcher fetches yet a different... WSUS fetches yet a different one... et cetera...

Win7 fetches a different one from Vista...
Vista fetches a different one from XP...
XP fetches a different one from Win2k...
Win2k fetches a different one from 98SE...

running WSUS from within XP but fetching updates for Vista fetches yet a different one...

you can use an XP-fectched rootsupd inside your Win2k or 98SE, but you don't get the same certs file you get from running the rootsupd inside your XP...

the list of "oddities" is outright ENDLESS...


BUT we DO have what "should be" an EASY fix - no matter what OS i'm in, Microsoft dishes me the same EXACT authrootstl.cab file !!!...

does anyone know how to create our certs.pem file from authrootstl.cab?
