SSL not working in Windows XP
« on: November 29, 2017, 12:12:03 AM »
About two weeks ago, I think, it was alright. Now IE 8 8 is having some kind of problem. Not a problem is Firefox, I can just ignore it. But IE will not let me go naked. I mean barefoot. 

I don't care about the SSL, this site I am using is a trusted site. Somewhere I read that is a new issue  in Windows XP. What do I do?

This link has me confused.

I have an application that only works with IE. So, how do I tell IE that all is good, don't worry.

What can I do?

Instant WordPress.

    InstantWP is a complete standalone, portable WordPress development environment.
    It will turn almost any Windows or macOS machine into a WordPress development server.
    InstantWP is free software, published under the GPL v3 License.
    Of course InstantWP is spyware and adware free 🙂

I don't know o anyway to make it call Firefox instead of IE.
But maybe somebody here does.

Fro reference:
The current version of Instant WP from 5.0 up does not work with XP.
Version 4.5 of Instant WP with work if fix in a config  file to use a browser other than IE. I choose Firefox. (IE8 has a SSL problem that stops  Instant WP .)

The file to change is:
pms_config.ini
Thee you will find this:
Code: [Select]
[Browser]
BrowserType=EXTERNAL
BrowserCommandOptions=
BrowserPath= ../system/InstantWP_GUI.exe
WorkOfflineTitle=InstantWP
BrowserSize=

Make this change for Firefox:
Code: [Select]
BrowserPath="C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe"
It works great! And it will let you move the front  page a tab to a new window. So no I can edit in the dashboard and see changes on my second monitor when I hit F5. That is so col!

Patio, you made my day!  ;D
