Initial Start-Up of UaExpert

When starting UaExpert for the first time, it is necessary to perform some final configuration steps. A dialog window will prompt you to create application instance certificate (see screenshot).


An application instance certificate is needed to create a secure channel, identifying the installation of UaExpert. When clicking OK, a new dialog window will open, collecting the information which is needed to create such a certificate. Fill out the form and confirm with OK. Red crosses indicate that a required field is still empty.

The new application instance certificate is saved in UaExpert’s PKI certificate store.


In the next dialog window, you can choose if and when UaExpert should check whether a more recent version is available (see screenshot).
