Kyrtool hangs while generating a keyring file for Domino

So, I modified that line slightly to match my own Notes directory and my (made up) password, but it hung, as if waiting for input. Back to the PLN, but nobody had an answer until it occurred to me that I was using the kyrtool.exe that came with Domino, so my path pointed at the Domino directory. Back in the instructions, the earlier steps were related to the Domino server (always 64-bit in 11.0.1), but the switch to Windows meant that the Administrator had downloaded the 32-bit kyrtool to the Notes client directory (always 32-bit in 11.0.1). So, my guess is that I was calling a 64-bit kyrtool.exe which was trying to use the DLLs and such from the 32-bit client and getting hung up. Jesse suggested I just remove that =c:\lotus\notes\notes.ini part and see what happened.

I always just do everything on my Windows desktop. OpenSSL works fine on windows too.

Yes, it seemed an odd choice to switch from Linux to Windows midstream. Perhaps the intention was to show how you could use both, but it hardly seems like best practice to start on one and then copy stuff over and continue somewhere else. Not that the OS change tripped me up so much as the switch from server to client, but since they happened together, I was more likely to miss it.
