To fix this

2: Check the time and date on the PC.
3: Go to "C:\Users\YOUR USERNAME HERE\AppData\LocalLow\Sun\Java\Deployment\security" and delete trusted.certs.

  1. I just tried this but it did not work to get my problem solved. I am trying to to run some software called eSellerPro to run but since upgrading my java I get this error all the time.

    1. I need more info about your environment, is this the exact error you are getting and what version of java is installed on your PC.....

  2. If you receive this error, this could be due to an untrusted publisher certificate file. To workaround the error, please follow the steps below depending on your Operating System:

    Windows:

    1) Open Control Panel
    2) Click on the Java icon to open the Java Control Panel
    3) Click on the Advanced tab and then Security (+) box
    4) Click on the General (+) box
    5) Click the box for "Enable list of trusted publishers"
    6) Close out of the Java Control Panel and try re-launching the download agent.

  3. Sounds like a very insecure solution. The uninstall, delete Sun directories, reinstall is a much better solution!

  4. This worked for me. Thank you. I had even tried uninstalling and reinstalling and kept getting the "Failed to validate certificate". Deleting that security file (which for me was 0kb) worked.

    1. I'm faced with the problem. But i found a simple way to access my SAN BROCADE SWITCH by typing the "javaws -viewer" on the Start Windows Menu.
      And Java cache viewer is launched, so just double-click to the wurm concerning your device that you wanna access to. And here you go.
