Re: List of trusted authorities - invalid?
I checked the .cab file and one of the certs has expired, Vadim. Perhaps
that's where the invalid message is stemming from.
Can recall going over the trusted certs before on another system but I
can't remember the URL where they were downloaded from.
The MS Download Center should be offering the same .cab of root certs:
Ugh. It's an .exe. OK, just extracted it and the certs *appear* to all
be valid. Suggest you do the same or just run the .exe from a network share.
