OCS 2007 failure to renew certificate

So you are having trouble renewing your OCS 2007 certificate?  My certificate expired over the weekend without my noticing and I tried to renew it.  Everything I tried was met with some unspecified error through the cert wizard.  I tried adding a new CA authority to our domain, adding the RTCServer locally as an administrator, and several other security tweaks.  What was the end solution?  Opening permissions to everyone on c:\documents and settings\all users.  I now have to determine which user actually needs those permissions.  Once I made this change everything started working as expected!

Gotta love the lack of error logging on the wizard :)
