i think the problem is solved.

after i generate a new ca with sha1 signature algorithm it works.
now i know, that windows xp whithout xp3 does not support sha256.
with that knowledge i testet the import on a sp3 machine and it works.

what is the disadvantage i we use certs with sha1?

thank you for your help.
