No Luck with Self-Signed Certificates in a Windows Store App RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there,

    I'm building a small windows 8 app that relies in a load balanced endpoint setup in Azure (with two servers). I've created a self-signed certificate in one of the servers, and exported that in DER format (.cer file) using the export feature in IIS manager (IIS 8.0 on a Win2012 datacenter instance). 

    I followed the instructions described in this thread, modifying the Package.appxmanifest file in my windows app, and adding the certificate file in the assets folder and changing its properties to content/copy always.

    The application runs when the endpoint is set to HTTP, but if I set it to HTTPS, I get the dreaded messsage:

    The underlying connection was closed: Could not establish trust relationship for the SSL/TLS secure channel.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
