Hostname mismatch in secure connection

Recommended Posts


I am on Windows 10 and I regularly get this pop up when I open Plastic.  I removed the hostnames from the message I pasted above for security reasons.  The only way I recover from this is to go to C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\plastic4\ folder and delete the guivisualstate.xml file.

Evidently this has something to do with server certificates etc.  There is an outdated help page which asks you to create a self signed certificate using makecert but there is no makecert anymore in Windows 10.  See this thread 



We need to use New-SelfsignedCertificate  See thread https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/win32/seccrypto/makecert

Can someone help me?  I am going crazy with this issue and I have been living with it for 2 years now.
