renwing cert - wants Certificate Request File?

Renewing cert in IIS.  Instructions are fine until step 22 under Installing Your SSL Certificate.  IIS is asking for the Certificate Authority's response (cer), not the Certificate file (crt).  How do I proceed?  Do I need to make another Certificate Request?

No.  Open (Double click) the .crt file and click on the Details tab.  Select Copy to File.  Click Next and select Base-64 encoded X.509 (.cer).  In name the file you want to give the full path.  eg: if you have the .crt file in a folder called SSL in C: drive, the path must be C:\SSL|<whatever name you choose you give to the .cer file>.  Then choose the default.  Click Finish and you should see the .cer file in the C:\SSL folder.
