web_service_set_security with X509 - Certificate with IDValue not found

I am trying to build a test using the WS protocol and I need to use the X509 security.  I have built the following comand based on the Function Reference and plugged in my own values.  I have also installed my certificate in the personal keystore using the Windows certmgr.msf program: 

            "IDValue=/C=US/ST=MyState/L=MyCity/O=My Company Name/OU=My Company Name/CN=COMPANY",
            "CanonicalizationAlgorithm= http://www.w3.org/TR/2002/REC-xml-exc-c14n-20020718/#WithComments",
The error I keep getting is:  Failed to create "MySecToken" token. Certificate with "IDValue" of "/C=US/ST=MyState/L=MyCity/O=My Company Name/OU=My Company Name/CN=COMPANY" not found.
I have tried several different values for the IDValue, including just the CN value.  Each time I get the same 'not found' error for the cert.  I have confirmed it is finding the store itself though.  I have also tried using the Base64Hash or Base64KeyID versions, but I get the same not found error.  I have confirmed the cert exists in the Key Store.  
I saw another post from a few years ago where another person had a similar issue, but I didn't see a resolution posted.  
Can someone please help point me in the right direction with this, please?
I am using HP Virtual User Generator - Version 12.02, Build 2739 on Windows 7.

Re: web_service_set_security with X509 - Certificate with IDValue not found

Good day Damien.

Assuming you tried to edit web_service_set_security() only directly from script body, which is not easiest approach.

Try following:  

    Select web_service_set_security(), call context menu by right mouse click. 

    In context menu - press on “Show Arguments” item,

    press the button located to the right from “Certificate” textfield – “Select Certificate” dialog will be opened.

    Set “location”, “name”, “field” filters to “All”, press “Find” button.

    Select required certificate from found list, press “Ok”.

Also, from "Show arguments" dialog you may specify other arguments related to X509 signing\encryption.
