A simple ACMEv2 client for Windows (for use with Let's Encrypt et al.)

Migration from <=1.9.4 to v1.9.5

Version 1.9.5 and later store information in system-wide folders and registry locations by default, but still support reading configuration data from user specific locations. As such it is backwards compatible with 1.9.4 and earlier.

Registry (optional)

  • Export the key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\letsencrypt-win-simple
  • Delete the key
  • Open the .reg file with your favorite text editor
  • Replace HKEY_CURRENT_USER for HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE and save it
  • Import the .reg file

File system (optional)

Move the folder %appdata%\letsencrypt-win-simple to %programdata%\letsencrypt-win-simple. Make sure the original is deleted, because the program prefers the old one over the new one.

Scheduled task (optional)

It should be changed to run as SYSTEM. Running under a specific user does not seem to work if the task is running without a password specified.
