SSL certificate is missing after installing ChefDK

When you install a new version of ChefDK and try to run Test Kitchen converge you may get the following error message
>>>>>> ------Exception-------
>>>>>> Class: Kitchen::ActionFailed
>>>>>> Message: Failed to complete #create action: [SSL_connect returned=1 errno=0 state=SSLv3 read server certificate B: certificate verify failed

To solve the problem add the following to the Windows environment variables and open a new Command or Bash window for the change to take effect:
SSL_CERT_FILE=C:\opscode\chefdk\embedded\ssl\certs\cacert.pem
