    This works in my Windows 8.0 laptop, not in the Windows Server 2008 system I want to use it on. I had hoped to iterate through this for all certificate stores and then find a match for a certificate deployed such that I can see the thumbprint but not the
    CN, etc, pertaining to the cert (don’t ask, it’s a weird app…).

    Is there any way to do this in Server 2008?

    Follow-up comment. The Server 2008 system gets part of the way there. It tells me the following childitems exist from Cert:Localmachine – I just can’t seem to get any deeper… Powershell returns only a null result.
