That worked! :D

Thanks for the tip about the Issuer and Subject, too!

Thanks to everyone for their help. To clarify for anyone else who may run into the same issue, the following code generates a self-signed certificate and adds it to the certificate store in a manner that IIS recognizes:

                TName issuer = new TName();
                issuer.CommonName = "MyFullyQualifiedHostname";

                TName subject = new TName();
                subject.CommonName = "MyFullyQualifiedHostname";

                TElX509Certificate x509 = new TElX509Certificate();


                x509.ValidFrom = DateTime.UtcNow.AddDays(-­1d);
                x509.ValidTo = new DateTime(2039, 12, 31, 23, 59, 59, DateTimeKind.Utc);

                x509.CAAvailable = false;

                int algorithm = SBUtils.__Global.SB_CERT_­ALGORITHM_MD5_RSA_ENCRYPT­ION;
                int dwords = 1024 / 32;
                x509.Generate(algorithm, dwords);

                TElWinCertStorage storage = new TElWinCertStorage();
                storage.AccessType = TSBStorageAccessType.atLo­calMachine;
                storage.Provider = TSBStorageProviderType.pt­RSASchannel;
                storage.Add(x509, "MY", true, false, false);
