I seem to have the same problem as the guy in Stuck at “Pending” when using DNS challenge - i have two challenges stuck in Pending state Unfortunately im also on windows - leaving me with the ACME client option. The original issue was closed in August '16 - but it would seem that the problem persists.
Does anyone know what to do in this situation? I reeeeaally dont feel like waiting 90 days Should I try and issue the cert on a real OS instead? (linux)
