    It is the certificate's problem, how about the HTTPS links work on the metro IE?

  •              In the IE, It displays the following message first, but users could click "Continue to this website (Not recommended)" link to display the content. Could we ignore certificate security check in backgrounddownloader like IE?

    There is a problem with this website's security certificate.

  • Rob,

    You cannot ignore certificate errors (this is by design).

    You can:

    1.  Resolve the certificate errors on the machine

    2.  Include the server certificate in your package and fully trust the bad certificate:

    Include Server certificate in manifest so application can trust an non-trusted or self-issued server certificate:

  • Thanks for the info. Could not find the certificate in IE: internet options/content/certifcates for my website after the webpage is opened.  Finally I exported the certificate from FireFox. How do I export my server's certificate from IE?

  • Run Internet Explorer as Administrator by right clicking on it.

    Click on the Lock icon in the task bar.  View Certificates.

    From there you can save your certificate to a file.
