TC/Web Tiffy viewer certificate not updating automatically

Article # 3036169 - Page views: 11

Issue

The TC/Web Tiffy viewer certificate is unable to update automatically.

Cause

The URL for auto-updating the Tiffy Viewer Certificate has changed which prevents some current installations from updating it automatically.

Another cause could be that the KCS TC/Web server doesn't have direct internet access, in that case manually download and update the ach.jar & ach.cab files.

Solution

The new URL to download the cetificates is: 

https://az32125.vo.msecnd.net/downlo...kcs/tcweb/2022

Please enter this new URL into the registry key:

..\TCWEB\CertificateAutoUpdateUrl 

and start the certificate update by clicking the "update now" button when it appears after the login into TC/Web. 

Usually it will update ach.jar and ach.cab automatically, but if you haven't assigned the correct write rights to ach.cab and ach.jar for the TC/Web user the update might fail. 

Alternatively you could download both files with the following links: 

https://az32125.vo.msecnd.net/downlo...b/2022/ach.jar

https://az32125.vo.msecnd.net/downlo...b/2022/ach.cab 

Copy them manually into the TCWEB folder replacing the old files.

NOTE: can only be done by a user who has sufficient rights assigned, otherwise you cannot overwrite the old files

Just for info: 

"version.xml" is also on the web, but does not need to be copied to the local TC/Web servers! 

And don't forget to do a "iisreset" after updating the certificates, this needs to be done after manual or automatic update!

NOTE: 

  • In KCS version 10.3 the Tiffy viewer is replaced by Atalsoft web viever.
  • The current Tiffy certificates are valid until July 13th 2022 which is the same date when KCS 10.2 is end of support.

Level of Complexity 

Moderate
