Creating iOS Certificate on Windows

OK, I just dropped $100 on an Apple developer account, and am I screwed for having a Windows computer?

Here is the link on how to create the iOS certificate you need to publish your apps, and you need a Mac computer: http://software.intel.com/en-us/xdk/articles/walkthrough-obtain-ios-appstore-adhoc-cert

Is there a way to create this certificate without a Mac? 

P.S. Forum staff, can you allow copy and paste? I had to hand type that URL so I hope I got it right. You also can't copy and paste URLs like 3rd party plugins on XDK.

P.S.S. I did try to search this topic on the forum, and the links would not click.

You do not need a mac too create a certificate, go here in your windows machine  https://developer.apple.com/membercenter/index.action

you only need a mac to upload your app .

cntrl + c to copy 

cntrl + v to paste

There are services available to help you upload your app to the Mac store. Some of the forum members may be able to help you. Also, if you have a friend with a Mac, they should be able to help you. As Josef said, the only thing you need a Mac for is to upload the final result into the Apple Store.

Why doesn't Apple tell you this before you fork over $100 and sign up for auto-renew?

The link on how to upload with Windows doesn't work; it just takes me to the log in, and if I log in, then try the link again, it goes back to log in. My questions on Apple are going unanswered.

I do have an extra laptop,, looking at the video, I don't think my extra laptop has duo-core, 64 bit, blah, blah, blah, and I don't want to accidentally screw up my main laptop install Mac OS.

So I need to give someone I don't know access to my Apple developer account? Just when I think I have this going, a big monkey wrench gets thrown in.

Problem solved, I called Apple and I am getting my money back.
