Certificates created using Win-Acme are automatically stored in your ‘Personal’ Folder.
3) Select the newly added certificate to Thinfinity VirtualUI ‘Bindings’ menu:

Open a browser, and navigate to the URL configured for Thinfinity.
You should see now that the URL is now protected with a valid HTTPS certificate :
And that’s it!
