In nearly all installations in the last three years we have restrictions on the servers where we need to install the SSL certificates, that make it impossible to verify the validity (e.g. no access to revocation servers).
The certificate is accepted by clients as those have different authorisations.
I would like to optionally bypass the certificate checks in the PI Web API Configuration utility to allow using certificates that cannot be validated. This will save a lot of time to bypass the utility and manually remove and bind a certificate.3 votes
This functionality is currently in development for the PI Vision 2020 release.
On a clean install, the setup kit will create a self-signed certificate, and apply it to the target IIS web site where PI Vision is being installed. On upgrade, where the previous version already had a certificate set for the PI Vision site, that certificate is used for the new version’s PI Vision web site.
The PI Vision install kit currently includes the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable 2015, 2017, and 2019. There is a version available that combines these versions (https://support.microsoft.com/en-ca/help/2977003/the-latest-supported-visual-c-downloads). Please include this version with the PI Vision install kit instead. This should make the PI Vision install kit a bit smaller and shrink the list of included programs.
Of course, if the dependence on the 2015 and/or the 2017 version is eliminated, then it would be better to not implement this suggestion.2 votes
Adding the latest version of the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable is currently in development for the PI Vision 2020 release.
