PBIVIZ failing on MakeCert (Deprecated?)

I'm trying to get started with creating visuals. Following the microsoft instructions for setting up my dev environment.  At the set for setting up the certificates, I'm running the PBIVIZ command (pbiviz --install-cert) but it keeps erroring on  "could not find MakeCert.exe".  Other microsoft docs indicate that makecert is deprecated but PBIVIZ is still using it.  Anyone found a solution to this problem?

Hi @thamera ,

 

Please make sure you have install the latest version node.js and pbiviz package.

As far as I know, creating and installing a certificate process describes running a PowerShell command that launches the Certificate Import Wizard

So please make sure you have install the latest version PowerShell and all packages you need.

For reference: Installing PowerShell on Windows

Note:  a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) Certificate is required.
