Hi @Anonymous,

On windows, running pbiviz --install-cert will normally bring up the dialog with the certificate file pre-populated, e.g.:

The only manual stuff should be adding the passphrase and selecting the correct store to add the cert to.

If you've installed powerbi-visuals-tools globally (i.e. with the npm -g flag), this can be worked-around by browsing to your node installation's node_modules/powerbi-visuals-tools/certs folder, where you can find the cert generated by the --install-cert command, e.g.:

image.png

 

(Note that your location may be different to mine)

Hopefully this should be all you need to proceed. If not, then you're best to approach the custom visuals team directly at pbicvsupport@microsoft.com, and they may be able to assist further.

Regards,

Daniel
