      I concur with Sebastian. I loaded tQSL on a desktop and a laptop, both running XP Pro SP2. The desktop took my original certificate but the laptop did not. I did the same as you and created a new user account on the laptop and then it took it. Likewise, I didn't want a second user account on the laptop. I bought a larger disk drive for the laptop and reinstalled XP from scratch and then tQSL and the original certificate went in just fine. I can only guess there was some intrinsic problem with the OS security system on the laptop for the main user account. When I talked to the help desk at ARRL, they admitted they had seen this issue "a couple of times" and didn't have a known solution.

      I had the exact same problem for weeks. I had to end up using LoTW
      software on my Mac - never had a problem there. I also saved my .p12
      file, and tried to import it to my PC and got the same error.

      I worked on this for several days, and thought that perhaps there was
      something wrong with my PC, so I installed it in my wife's XP machine,
      and got the same error.

      I don't know what I did, but I then went ahead and created a new .p12
      file from my Mac, moved it over to the PC, and downloaded the program
      again; and I was finally able to load it.

      I wish I could help you and tell you what made it work, but
      unfortunately, I can't. And I have a feeling you are not alone.
