Where can I download certutil.exe and the NSS Utils for Windows


I know many people struggle to find Certutil.exe and the rest of the NSS Utils so I have compiled version 3.14.2, using the same method I previously posted here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/687296 but this time with Visual C++ 2010 (x86)


The zip file can be downloaded from ....

So, are you having problems with Firefox? I'm a bit confused as to the point of this post

Helpful Reply

No, No problems at all, I was just posting a link to the updated version of the NSS / NSPR utils as they aren't available to download from the Mozilla website pre-compiled for windows. I answered someone's question about where can this be downloaded from on the other linked forum post ( but this is now closed so I can't update it) and the original hosting company has been shut down.

I now see that the link to my download has been removed, which now makes the whole point of the post pointless. Can the link be re-instated please?

Thanks PRF2. I successfully compiled nss using the steps given in your earlier post. Also, able to install the certificates in Firefox's cert store. but After Firefox Vesion 18, it started complaining about multiple dlls. I think Firefox guys have removed those dlls from installation location. any ide about, what can be done to solve this issue?

When you compile certutil there should be a whole raft of other exe and all the dll files you need. the dll files need to be either in c:\windows\system32 or in the same folder as certutil.exe.

Hope this helps.
