Unofficial Root Certificates 2007 Update

Recommended Posts


Sorry for this question, but I couldn't find a quick answer - what IS this root certificates stuff all about, what does it, what is it for, why should I update it etc.? I've never really heard of it before this discussion here began. Could somebody quickly tell me what this is all about?

For reference, as discussed in this newer related thread, I performed a DOS file compare check of the registry before and after installing the latest rootsupd.exe update and here are the results.

EDIT: Updated with zipped file of DOS file compare data.rootsupd.zip

What do you mean "don't work"? This link provides a file that sure does work. Tested it last yesterday. Notice, please, that it's the same link offered in the 1st post.

Of course it works! The fact it gives you no feed-back from it doesn't help, I know. But work it does. If you had actually read this thread before posting you'd seen this:

It shows how to actually prove to oneself rootsupd.exe does work. However, this approach of using Regshot 1.8.2 is only useful when you do a reg shot before running rootsupd, then run it, then do the second shot... Since you've already run rootsupd at least once, the registry entries are already changed, so you'll see no difference between the shots. Wait for the next rootsupd, and then do it. It'll convince you it actually works. But meanwhile, believe me, don't worry, because rootsupd has updated your root certificates.
