Connection center couldn't connect to HealthVault RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I start connection center, it says "Initializing, wait a few moments", then comes up with "Connection center couldn't connect to HealthVault"

    and gives a retry and exit button...  retries have the same issue, exit closes it down.  Installed the 4.1 for win7 version, have uninstalled/reinstalled, cleaned the registry, made sure there were no more files left etc.

    I never get prompted for a user/pass, and if I go to tools, add a user and add my healthvault to it, that process works.  However, trying to run the connection center again gives the same results.

    I am running Win 7 Ultimate 64 bit.

    attached is a screen shot

  • I am not able to re-product the connection center error, too.  Connection center automatically connects to HealthVault when it starts. 

    I recommend to check firewall setting and security software installed on the PC.

  • Do you have any firewall settings perhaps that might be blocking connection center from being able to talk to HealthVault?

  • I had thought that may be an issue, so I disabled windows firewall.  What port(s) need to be open so I can configure my router to make sure?

    Thanks

  • HV Connection Center requires https access to platform.healthvault.com. This error is usually due to a local firewall prohibiting the app from accessing the network, or on corporate network, a domain or network level policy preventing the same.

  • Paul,

    I am using Windows 8 64ibt.  Even after disabling the firewall and virus software (Windows Defender), I am unable to access the internet with the HealthVault Connection Center.  Do you have a proposal for connecting that does not involve uninstalling browsers.  What port does HealthVault require?

  • Paul I have the same problem I am using Windows 8 and IE 11 64 bit Any help

  • Connection center communicates with HealthVault via the HTTPS protocol, so it is using standard HTTP/HTTPS ports. I was unable to re-produce the connection error. Are you still experiencing connection problems?

  • Yup, had the same issue! 

    Short answer solution:  reset my Internet Explorer back to default setting!

    Longer answer: Windows Vista Home Premium 32 bit;  Fiber-optic internet connection. Chrome browser.  Checked firewall settings (even added HealthVault as an exception!)  

    Didn't figure out the problem until I read this thread were the suggestion was made to uninstall/reinstall Internet Explorer -- I wondered why should I have do that, my internet connection works just fine with Chrome browser.  Out of any other ideas and mostly out of curiosity I opened my IE9 and was surprised to discover it was NOT CONNECTING!  Even though Chrome, email and multiple other programs were working flawlessly,  Internet Explorer was not.  Apparently, in the process of tinkering with other apps like VPN's and such, the internet Explorer setting got screwed up and it couldn't "see" my internet connection. 

    Went into settings --> Internet Options --> Advanced --> Reset Internet Explorer settings -->reset

    Hit the "apply" button and reopened the Internet Explorer...  Now working normally.

    Tried the HealthVault Connection Center again -- VOILA!
