Letsencrypt-win-simple - Renewal Dates Don't Match Certificate Dates

Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better.

My domain is:mail.george-mathai.com

I ran this command: letsencrypt.exe --renew and run scheduled task

It produced this output: Renewal Scheduled Manual mail.george-mathai.com (%SystemDrive%\inetpub\wwwroot)
Renew After 23/07/2017

My web server is (include version): IIS 7.5

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version):

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: myself

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know): yes

I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel):

Hello all,

i’m trying to renew my cert which expire on june the 22th.
When i launch the scheduled task or manual command it’s saying i can renew after july 23th.
IIS certificate is still the same and no other certs in central store or others folders.


Hi @Jrousselet77

You only have two certs https://crt.sh/?q=mail.george-mathai.com

Expiring on 22/06/2017

It’s a bit weird that the dates are out of sync. Can you paste the log entries so we can verify what’s matching

Also the author has a github you can use to submit and issue


Hey @ahaw021

Here what happened when doing letsencrypt --renew:

C:\Central_ssl>letsencrypt.exe --renew
Let’s Encrypt (Simple Windows ACME Client)
Renewal Period: 60
Certificate Store: WebHosting

may i give you more logs?


Seems to have same issue with citrix.garrigues-sa.com. I used same client


You have to inspect this registry value : HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\letsencrypt-win-simple\https://acme-v01.api.letsencrypt.org/

You will see the renew date for each certificate.

Kind regards,



I checked. Renew date is the same as the renew’s command result. I tried manually update today, and now renew date is 07/28/2017. It’s increasing each day.


Very strange.
I should try an intial get for this certificate (not a renew).
