  2. Right-click the .CER file in Windows RT, and select Install Certificate.
  3. Select either Current User or more likely Local Machine.
  4. If you need to install the certificate to a specific location, for example if it's a root certificate, select the option Place all certificates in the following store then click Browse... and select the right store, for example Trusted Root Certification Authorities, then click OK.
  5. Click Next, then click Finish.
