SSL Manager Installation

This guide will walk you through the process of acquiring and installing the latest version of SSL.com‘s SSL Manager into a modern Windows operating system.

Downloading SSL Manager

You can find the latest version of SSL Manager’s installer executable here.

Installing SSL Manager

When the download is complete, locate and double-click the installer file (currently SSL-Manager-2.2-Installer-build-20190130.msi).

NOTE: Depending on your local computer’s User Account Control settings, you may receive messages warning that you are opening an executable file downloaded from the Internet and/or requesting confirmation to proceed. Both the Installer and SSL Manager are code-signed and perfectly safe to use.

This will start the installation wizard and show a welcome message.

Click “Next” to acknowledge the welcome message.

This window contains the EULA for SSL Manager. Read and accept it to enable the “Next” button.

Click “Next” to select the installation directory.

Click “Next” again to proceed, and “Install” to complete the process.

When the installation process is complete, click “Finish” to close the installer.

You may optionally check “Launch SSL Manager” to start the application after the installer is closed.

Alternatively, you can run SSL Manager via the Windows Start menu or the newly created desktop shortcut.

Keep in mind that you need an SSL.com customer account in order to use the full set of features SSL Manager has to offer. If you don’t have one, you can find instructions on how to register a new customer account here

You can also find the project documentation with details on all the features and troubleshooting information here.

Optional: Permanently allow administrator access

SSL Manager requires administrator access to function. When you execute it without elevated privilege, it will ask Windows for this access and you will be prompted to permit it.w

If you don’t want to repeat this (albeit simple) process, you can enable permanent administrator access via the desktop icon created upon installation.

Right-click the desktop icon and select “Properties” from the menu. Switch to the “Shortcut” tab and click on “Advanced”. Check the box marked “Run as Administrator” as shown in the image below.

Click the “OK” button to save this preference and “OK”, again, to close the Properties panel.

Your SSL Manager should now run as Administrator with no prompts.
