The certificate for the signer of the message is invalid or not found


Today i was setting up test CRM server environment for my 2013 up-gradation from 2011. When i run the CRM 2011 installer on the windows 2012 server it prompted to install all required components.When i clicked next installed all the pre request components except Windows Identity foundation.It was showing failed to install WIF with below error message.

The certificate for the signer of the message is invalid or not found.

 

I thought something would have went wrong with the the downloaded install file for WIF, so i manually downloaded WIF and tried to installed it on the server.Even manual installation showed same error message.

SOLUTION :

After doing a little research, I discovered that Windows Identity Foundation is built into Windows Server 2012 Release Candidate as an additional Feature that you can add via Server Manager:

After selecting Windows Identity Foundation 3.5 from the Add Roles and Features Wizard, I clicked Next and then Install.  Once the installation wizard completed I ran CRM installtion and this time Windows Identity Foundation passed the prerequisite check and i was able to install CRM without any issue.
