Hi all,

I have a problem with Internet Explorer embedded SWT browser. Whenever I try to open any valid HTTPS url, a dialog with following message comes from the browser:
"Revocation information for the security certificate for this site is not available. Do you want to proceed?"

Snippet128 is the easiest way to reproduce it.
I have IE8 on Windows 7. Tested on Eclipse versions: 3.4.2, 3.6.2 and 3.7.1. I am forced to use IE, changing the browser is not an option.

The message doesn't appear when launching stand-alone IE.

Do you have any thoughts?

Thanks,
Bartek

Hello,

Maybe it's the same problem I've submitted (http://www.eclipse.org/forums/index.php/mv/msg/251933/743401/#msg_743401)

Try to upgrade to SWT 3.7 and run Java with option -Dorg.eclipse.swt.browser.IEVersion=8888

Hi Bartek,

I've never heard of anyone reporting this before, and the scenario of
navigating to an https site is pretty common. Since you see it in swt
releases that span the last few years, it must be triggered by something
that's uncommon in your environment.

A google search for that error message finds various discussions of
users seeing this in older versions of stand-alone IE. My initial guess
is that something in your environment is triggering this (eg.- a setting
in stand-alone IE), but you're only seeing it in the SWT Browser because
it embeds an older IE version by default (see
http://www.eclipse.org/swt/faq.php#browsernativeie ). The Browser in
swt 3.7.x intended to always embed the latest installed IE version but
fell short in some cases, the resulting bug is
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=361861 .

So like the other responder suggested, a first thing to try is to add
the "-Dorg.eclipse.swt.browser.IEVersion=8888" line to the end of your
eclipse.ini file. If this helps then you can use this as a workaround
for now, and when https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=361861
is fixed then the workaround can be removed. If this does not help your
case then please follow up.

Fran├žois, Grant,

Thanks for your replies.

Unfortunately setting up org.eclipse.swt.browser.IEVersion property doesn't change anything.

Any ideas what I should check on my environment?

Thanks,
Bartek
