  • Hi Yleshch,

    Please take a look at this blog: 


    To troubleshoot this error, configure WinHTTP local machine Proxy settings to use User IE Proxy settings using the command 'proxycfg.exe -u' (This command imports the Internet Explorer proxy settings of the current user).

    Run 'proxycfg.exe -u' command followed by ClientDiag. The sample below shows Winhttp local machine Proxy Settings are now cloned to User IE Proxy settings.
