The updates needed to make SHA2 (SHA-256) working with Windows 2003 and Windows XP SP3

Very common problem with SHA2 (SHA-256) on Windows 2003 and Windows XP SP3 is that it does not work :-) Although not every functionality with SHA-256 certificates is supported anyway, yet in order to make it as working as possible, you must install some updates which are not distributed automatically through Windows/Microsoft Update and you must request them online from the support site (note the big green button up on the page telling you Hotfix Download Available):

You may also be interested in adding AES support for schannel (TLS/SSL) provider into Windows 2003. Although this does not make it support SHA-256 cryptographic suites, it at least enables AES and AES256.

Cheers!
