WebParser - An error occured in the secure channel support

Post by rainusero »

Hello folks.

There is a problem with WebParser plugin.
I am unable to parse https:// websites.
Example: https://www.ipaddress.com/
I can't fetch any values from this site like Netspeed, City, Country, etc.

Code: Select all

[MeasureWebsite]
Measure=Plugin
Plugin=WebParser
URL=https://ipaddress.com
RegExp=(?siU)<th>ISP:</th>.*<td>(.*)</td>.*<th>Netspeed:</th>.*<td>(.*)</td>.*<th>City:</th>.*<td>(.*)</td>.*<th>Country:</th>.*<td>(.*)</td>.*<th>Proxy:</th>.*<td>(.*)</td>
Rainmeter log says:
WebParser: (Fetch error) An error occured in the secure channel support (ErrorCode=12157).

Rainmeter version 3.3.3 r2744 32-bit (Jul 5 2017).
I am on Windows XP and can't upgrade to 4.0 so I will need to stay on the 3.3.3.

Anyone knows how to solve or bypass this problem in 3.3.3 version ?

Greetings.

For me your measure works well, returning the appropriate strings.
In such cases the first thing you should try is a complete restart of Rainmeter. Right click its icon on the notification area and click Exit, then restart it from the Start menu. This can help because: https://forum.rainmeter.net/viewtopic.php?p=128449#p128449.
Did a restart help?

Restart didn't help. I tried several times.
Is everything ok with RegEx formula ?

Yep, everything is ok, as I said, for me it is working well.
Although I am a newer Rainmeter, I don't think on the 3.3.3 version it wouldn't work. No more ideas at now. Sorry...

There's only a last suggestion: can you verify if you can access with your Internet Explorer to all these sites?
(Keep in mind that WebParser uses IE to access sites, if you have outdated cookies or problem with IE, then WebParser won't work).

On the other hand, using XP to access internet is highly problematic as it's an unsupported and outdated OS.
I still have two XP machines, but in no way I use them with internet and anything coming from another computer.
