The app cannot reach the CRL distribution point for the certificate validation check

Q: The app cannot reach the CRL distribution point for the certificate validation check

We developed an app using HTTPS, running on Windows 8.1 Pro, and the app is being used in an Proxy enabled environment.

We set the appropriate Proxy setting to the app, but, for some reason, the app cannnot reach the CRL distribution point for cheking the validity of the SSL certificate.

Our app designates the proxy to the Windows API, but it seems like WinInet/WinHttp is not using this proxy when checking for the certificate.

By using netsh winhttp set proxy xxxx, it can reach to the CRL distribution point via the proxy.

It looks like a some sort of bug, but not sure. Can anyone help us to solve the issue here?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

My client has got a gmail account set up with outlook 2003.

He uses POP, and from Saturday, he hasn't been able to receive his gmail emails via Outlook, but he can through GMail (website.)

I have checked all the settings:

Correct username and password
Incoming: pop.googlemail.com Port 995 Encrypted
Outgoing: smtp.googlemail.com Port 465 Encrpted
Leave Messages on Server.

I have changed port numbers to 25, 110 and 587.

Changed to gmail.com
No difference

Outlook says the server is specified, but the settings are incorrect.I double-checked to make sure the password was entered correctly.I then ran the GMail POP troubleshooter, which gave the attached details. What do you think?

When opening emails from stores, etc. I keep getting a pop-up regarding "validation of certificates". I have to keep clicking on the pop-up and after maybe 15-20 times the pop-up will disappear and then I can read the email. How can I keep this from happening? Is it something that needs to be changes in the security area?

It had been months since id been on the internet so yesterday I updated and i ran S&D, AVG, AdAware, and updated Zone alarm from 5.5 to 6 and all was well.

I left my machine running over night, it was still running in the morning but soon after turned itself off.

Now when i turn it on it give me the same error message box, twice. ( after booting into windows )

" Validation failed for C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\VSINIT.dll. Your probably missing nessassary root certificate. "

I didnt go any further and fist tryed rebooting it a couple of times

sometimes the menue apears transparent and sometimes it seems ok and lauches programms no prob.

but each time the same message comes up twice.

i also tryed system restore to an earler time, same message.

also tryed doing a repair from the Windows XP Pro cd, then i get this message

" file \i386\vgaoem.fon could not be loaded. The error code is 32768 set up cant continue. "

Now this gets me worried and after a search i get different solusions, some alien to me and some conflicting; the only one i tried is

Now im lost and concerned, any help much apreachated. thanks in advance

I am setting up a large apartment (an entire floor) in Manhattan with wireless access. there are a lot of weird architectural obstacles for the wifi signal to get around (lead in walls, steel walls, long hallways, etc.) in the house and i need to get as much coverage as possible. Throughout the house there are ethernet jacks.

now for the question:
I need help in figuring out how i should i connect all these access points because i want the apartment owner to be able to hop from access point to access point as they walk around with their laptop (or whatever wifi device) and never not have access. Should I have every access point plugged into an ethernet jack which runs back to the closet and then have them all go to one port on the router\switch (I assume this woulld cause info to be broadcast across all access points at the same time, which would cover the laptop no matter which access point is closest and would also not require a new ip)? Or should I use some sort of mesh wireless access point which would not need to be plugged into an ethernet jack (just power) and would boost the signal or repeat the signal of one access point? If so, what product would work best?

furthermore, if i use all the same access points on the same channel, i assume they may drown eachother out in some place. how can i deal with that problem on top of all this?

Thank you all so much.

Hello there guys,

I installed ZoneAlarm free firewall yesterday and during the install i recieved an error message saying "Validation failed for Vsmon.exe, this is probably due to a missing root certificate." ZoneAlarm seemed to install fine but it slowed my firefox and IE browsers down to crawling speed, so i uninstalled it, and they seem to be working fine again. I had a look around on the net for info on this 'missing root certificate' and found out that Vsmon.exe is a ZoneAlarm file and that a missing root certificate on my pc can be caused by Malicious software.

So to sum up my issue and question is that 'if' i have missing root certificates on my pc (and it wasnt related to ZoneAlarm) does it mean that i have some sort of hidden malware or even a rootkit that could be causing damage under my nose?

I have Super Antispyware, Avast Antivirus free edition, MalwareBytes Anti-malware, Spy-Bot S&D and windows defender and firewall.

I have a T460s (minor issues) and a Yoga 720 (4 months old) that is almost unusable. I live in Norway but is travelling for 6 months in Nicaragua. I am very happy with the support in Norway, and the on-site service is wonderful. However it seems to be impossible to reach support here in Nicaragua. The number on support page goes to a marketing company, unless you ask your users if "they have someone in the household above 50 years old". An IBM page lists another number, that is not working. Googling desperately for weeks have given me totally 3 numbers that are all useless. I've tried contacting support in Norway and USA, but neither can help me. Is it really impossible to reach support in Nicaragua?

Since the problem began I have scanned it with Clamwin Portable (fully updated) and Stinger, and found no malware.

I have disconnected the computer from the router

Oher noted problems were

Id-pkix-ocsp-nocheck in OCSP certificate exists: SSL certificate validation succeeded.
Id-pkix-ocsp-nocheck not present in OCSP certificate: OCSP Request 2 times request (verification failed).

Why do IE browsers differ in the validation of SSL certificates according to the id-pkix-ocsp-nocheck extension field in the OCSP certificate?

Hi guys
To anybody who needs to download the Windows AIK (Automated Installation Kit) you can do it directly from Windows 7 -- it bypasses all the Windows validation check and windows live ID B/S and takes you straight to the download.

You still get the validation screen - but just click download and it all works

It's a 992 MB file however so you'll need a decent Internet Connection for this one.

This is useful for building a PE environment and deploying Windows on loads of machines.

I am trying to resolve an issue where multiple client computers in the organisation are using an internally deployed Root CA certificate (before my time and no longer required) to sign the end entity certificate for external websites, google.co.uk
for example. All SSL sites appeared to be affected by this.

However this is not the case as sub domains of sites with issues show the correct cert chain, the below is for mail.google.com

Removing or untrusting this root ca cert breaks access to these sites.

I have reset root certs in various ways, removed machines from the domain, applied no GPOs, manually updated CRL and pulled down updated certs with rootsupd.exe.
It always attempts to use this rouge CA cert to sign the websites cert.

Any assistance would be much appreciated.

Currently, when users are trying to Export a SharePoint List to Excel, they receive a certificate warning message then it fails with an error ?Cannot connect to server at this time.? ? On investigation, it seems this is a known issue with internet Explorer
and SharePoint. Within IE, on the ?Advanced? tab -> Internet Explorer setting ? there is an attribute ?Check for server certificate revocation? ? if this is checked, then this can cause the issue being experienced.  Currently, it is checked and I have
been able to prove that disabling the setting, resolves the issues ? so that SharePoint Lists can be Exported to Excel successfully.
we?d need to look at the group policy for the "Check for Server Certificate Revocation" setting..... I am hopeful that it can be changed just for the SharePoint teamsite URL, as
opposed to for ALL websites.

So is it possible to disable this setting for individual websites?

I'm not sure if it could be related but we have Sophos UTM 9 - and it's caused us IE setting issues in the past.

Thanks all!

IE 11 has started giving me the Access to site has been blocked due to certificate signature being weak.

I have tried unchecking "Warn about certificate mismatch, and warn if switching between secure and not secure mode.

I have tried importing a new certificate
I have even tried copying the certificate from a working computer and still I get the Certificate error issue, and am blocked from accessing the URL.

IS there some way to Permanently DISABLE certificate checking in IE??

I just tried to run Windows Validation and recieved the following message:


Validation Failure: Product Key Failed Validation

2 years ago, I purchased WinXP Home at a retail outlet and have been using it since then. Unfortunately, I lost the original disk, and have installed XP on my machine from another disk.

But I used my original Product Code when installing it. The code really is mine, and I am looking at it right now.

In another forum, someone told me that all XP disks are the same; that it didn't matter which disk you used to actually install the O/S, that what really mattered was whether the Product Key Code was legitimate or not. In short, there is no connection between the disk that you purchase and the code that comes with it. The disks are "generic" and interchangable, and there would be no problem with using any disk as long as the Product Key Code was legitimate.

Given that, why is my machine failing the Microsoft Validation, and what can be done about it ?

I have a Check Point 500 firewall. And I am getting slow download speeds. Now this piece of hardware is 10 years old, but should it be getting on average 4.2 Mbps download ( avg over 6 speedtest.net sessions to San Jose servers)

Also when I do a speedtest.net test, I can get download speeds of 9/10 Mbps if I connect to Palo Alto. But if I choose San Jose, I get the avg download of 4.2 Mbps. Can someone explain why?

So the Check Point 500 seems to be Capable of running faster. But most times when I download big files, like a Linux ISO, I have to wait 1 hr+.

So I bought a new router, and when I do a speedtest.net test with it, I get 27 Mbps to San Jose. And Linux ISO downloads wait times are around 4 to 7 minutes.

Should I throw away the Check Point?

As previously specified you can't install using the vmware wizard -- or at least using the product key supplied by MS -- it's invalid -- use the number given by Vrosa in this thread.

however if you create the VM manually remember to set the Boot from BIOS the ist time and set the vm to boot from the virtual (or real ISO if you are using a physical DVD)

This will allow you to change to boot order of devices for the VM at boot.

(Change it back again afterwards or you'ii get the install screen again and again).

to start my Outlook 2016 client on my Windows 10 computer on their network, I got the same error.  Two notes are important: 1) I use godaddy as well and 2) I used the same computer at a different client just yesterday without a single error message.
2) They use POP 995 w/ SSL & SMTP 465 w/ SSL to pop.secureserver.net & smtpout.secureserver.net repsectively
3) I called the company that manages their firewall and was told that everything was fine, but was sent a certificate from the firewall that might fix the problem.
4) The firewall company tells me they use a fortinet firewall

I have some questions that I'm hoping one of the experts here can answer for me:

- What in a firewall setup can cause a certificate to fail as listed in the subject?
- Is there a port or configuration change they... Read more

I have some Windows 7 systems which have not run Windows Updates for many years, and cannot due to regulatory reasons.   We rely upon Windows to automatically update the Trusted Root Certificate store whenever we browse to a web site/web service
that uses a certificate the system doesn't recognize. 
Sometime recently, the Trusted Root Certificate Store no longer updates automatically.  The Windows Event Log shows an error stating that the certificates cannot be downloaded from:
http : // ctldl.windowsupdate.com/msdownload/update/v3/static/trustedr/en/authrootstl.cab
If we browse to this location manually, the cab file contains an invalid Microsoft certificate. 

This was also an issue in Sept 2018.  At that time, the certificate had expired, and Microsoft eventually updated the certificate to resolve the issue.   This time, the certificate does not appear to have expired.  Why is the certificate
invalid this time, and can Microsoft fix it again?

Can someone walk me through the steps of having Advanced Threat Analytics (ATA) request a new certificate from Active Directory Certificate Services (ADCS)?  I'm not familiar with either product so I will need detailed steps please.  At a high-level
i'm guessing
1. ATA issues a certificate request
2. I send the request to ADCS
3. ADCS issues a cert for that request
4. Install new cert in ATA
I'll need detailed command line statements.  My ATA Center server is named ATASERVER.DOMAIN.ORG, and I but the URL is configured as ATACENTER.DOMAIN.ORG in ATA.  Can the cert handle both the servername and the URL?
Thank you in advance!

Really confusing one here. Since this weekend (16/17 July) we have started getting Certificate errors on some sites and applications. This seems to be due to the structure of the URL compared to the "advertised" name IIS is presenting. I'll try
to explain.
I have a site, Website. This is in my domain, domain.com. Therefore the FQDN is website.domain.com. IIS is running and I can access this site through FQDN,NetBIOS or IP address. Good news.
I create a certificate for the server using the FQDN as the subject, I add the Netbios and IP addresses in the Subject Alternate Names and Bind this to port 443 on the server.
I browse to https://website and all is good. I browse to https://website.domain.com I get a certificate error. Checking the certificate, everything is fine, no errors, chain is trusted. open Chrome and do the same, I get that the certificate website.domain.com
is being presented by Website and may not be the site I want.
Using either URL has never been a problem until this weekend, but it seems that IE/Windows/IIS is not liking any URL that is not EXACTLY what IIS is presenting. so my questions are:-
Is anyone else finding this?
Can we issue a certificate that covers all possible DNS resolutions for a site?
How do I control WHAT IIS advertises itself as?
SO far this has affected two major systems on our network and I can see that more will arise, so any help would be appreciated.

In Internet Explorer, when I get a certificate error, if I continue to the web site, I can then view the certificate to see what was wrong.  However, obviously it would be preferable* to see the certificate
before I make the decision to go to the site.  Is this possible?  I'm sure I could use another browser that does this, or maybe use the F12 developer tools, or write a program.   But I'm looking
for a normal-user way to do it.  I think it used to be possible in Internet Explorer, but this might have been 6.x or even earlier.  Or even
way earlier.  Yep.  I'm that old.  I believe this feature is not in Edge either...unless I'm just missing it.  But I'm using ie11 right now.
*understatement level is set to "high".

Having some fun with a windows 7 setup of DirectAccess, have it configured to use ECC certificates on the client for the IPSec authentication, which was working brilliantly, we even have it loaded up behind a Citrix Netscaler to do SSL offloading of the
HTTPS tunnel encryption. But when trying to get Client Preauthentication working, we hit a snag, it seems that the NetScalers dont support ECC certificates, which is a pain, but something we thought we could work around by using an RSA certificate on the client
to performed the pre-authentication (as shown here https://directaccess.richardhicks.com/2016/05/10/directaccess-ip-https-preauthentication-using-citrix-netscaler/).
So we have three CA's, CA1/2 issue RSA certs and CA3 is setup to do the ECC ones, so nice separation of the chains.
So we have our Cert chain for RSA loaded into the load balancer and a new cert issued to the client from CA1... But, every time the client connects to the server (LB) we see the handshake taking place, the server sends a list of its DNs (CA1/2) (https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/kaushal/2015/05/27/client-certificate-authentication/)
to the client, but then the client looks in its store, picks out the ECC certificate (issued from CA3) and fails to authenticate saying no suitable certificate can be found, its like its not even looking at the RSA one at all.
So, thinking something was wrong with the way the LB was asking for client authentication, I tried deleting the ECC cert a... Read more
