iHTTPOpen Error Message 12044 ERROR_INTERNET_CLIENT_AUTH_CERT_NEEDED


Question:

I am setting up my first script using the WinInet extender. The web site I need to get to always pops up the "Client Authentication" dialog box. This sounds strange, but we don't use a certificate for this site, we just click "OK" on this dialog box and are able to continue to enter the username/password. However, when I attempt this using the WinInet extender, I get error message 12044, which means "ERROR_INTERNET_CLIENT_AUTH_CERT_NEEDED".

How do I get past this? Is there a way using the WinInet extender to just click OK on this dialog box (or effectively click OK)?

Answer:

Starting Wininet version 25071 we added new option "client_cert_context" to iOptionSet.

Use iOptionSet with client_cert_context. It allows you to specify the Certificates subject...
