Cannot bypass cert errors

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I'm trying to create a script for an internal website process.  The website doesn't have any certificates so presents with the standard IE errors.  I am using the following to try and by pass:

Func IsCertificateErrorPage($IEObject)
 local $returnVal = False
 If StringRegExp(_IEBodyReadText ($IEObject), "There is a problem with this website.s security certificate.") Then
  $returnVal = True
 return $returnVal




Func ContinueOnCertificateError($IEObject)
 _IELinkClickByText ($IEObject, "Continue to this website (not recommended).",0,0)

After IE Opens:

 If (IsCertificateErrorPage($oIE), "Yes")==0) Then

It doesn't click the link!


any suggestions?

Explain this bit and how it even runs without error.

If (IsCertificateErrorPage($oIE), "Yes") == 0) Then

Hi John,


Originally that said:



$BypassCertificateError an external variable that I removed whilst testing (it doesn't really need it.


Here's the entire code:



As you can see, I am bypassing the cert error at the moment the extremely dirty way:


WinWait("Certificate Error: Navigation Blocked - Windows Internet Explorer")
Send ("{TAB 10}")

But I'd much rather bring back the naive method of bypassing, either by clicking the link using the commented out line:

;_IELinkClickByText($oIE, "Continue to this website (not recommended).")

Also - I cant seem to paste code using the code snippet - does it only work line by line or something? :(

I do not think we are prepared to help you bypass the error given that it is placed there for a purpose. Thread locked.
