I am experiencing this error. When trying to install a ssl

Customer Question

I am experiencing this error. When trying to install a ssl certificate.
An internal error occurred. This can be either the user profile is not accessible or the private key that you are importing might require a cryptographic service provider that is not installed on your system.

I have a a simple 3 pc setup and no real infrastructure. Modem to router to pc's.

Expert:  Dustin replied 1 year ago.

When you say you are the owner of a store.

Do you own the website itself?

Or, are you just trying to access it as a normal user would?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Access as a normal user.

All of the other pc's are identical to this one and they are fine. This one does not connect.

Expert:  Dustin replied 1 year ago.

I have the same issue on my windows 10 computer

Im assuming that none of the computers you have where this works, have windows 10 installed.

The reason for this is that website you are trying to access uses an older less secure security cipher called rc4.

Its been completely disabled on windows 10 systems. To verify, check with any other windows 10 computer..

That will verify that you cannot access that site until the website admins / engineers update it so it doesnt use or rely on the rc4 cipher.

I strive to provide great service, and greatly appreciate a rating of excellent ( 5 stars ) selected and submitted below this answer or at the top right of the screen. I always answer follow up questions.
