When you say this "did not work", how did it fail?  The clue is
usually in the error message.

In any case, you almost certainly can't just write C:\pki\ because \
is an escape character.  Maybe you can double them, or use forward
slashes instead.

It's really not helpful to use virt-viewer to test.  Test using a
simple tool like virsh.  Get that working first.  Once you understand
what the problem was, *only then* try virt-viewer.

You can also disable encryption in libvirtd:


or read the libvirtd.conf file.
