I'm using openssl-0.9.8g and trying to use v3conf.c but continually get
"Error adding extensions"

admin@eProducts /cygdrive/e/Projects/openssl-0.9.8g/demos/x509

$ ./v3conf.exe

Usage: v3conf cert.pem [file.cnf]

admin@eProducts /cygdrive/e/Projects/openssl-0.9.8g/demos/x509

$ ./v3conf.exe usercertificatecert.pem test.cnf

Error adding extensions

I have a perfectly good pem certificate, I'm following openssl.cnf format
for certificate extensions. Yet I've not been able to get beyond this
error. I was wondering if anyone could provide any insight? Or a sample of a
"file.cnf" they got to work?

Thank you,
