I have a window's service which is running on my windows server which acts as a server and listen's to requests over HTTP and responds back.

Everything work's fine until I install a non-self signed certificate in root certificate store, and Any request to my windows service fails with a forbidden 403 error. I dont understand the correlation between existence of a non-self signed certificate in root store and my windows service requests getting rejected with 403? I am not even using IIS to host my service. Can someone please explain this?

    Why are you placing the certificate in the Root Certificate store? You want to place the CA's certificate in the Root Certificate store (if it's not already there) or replace the CA's certificate if it's expired or has been reissued. The certificate you were issued goes into the Certificate Store.
