    I’m afraid the time has come guys. :sos
    With WinXP now having very out of date certificates for https, it simply will not work with some websites anymore.
    This includes SimTools.us and just about any official Microsoft website also.

    While you can still find browsers that will connect to these sites, It still work fix the issue, because they have updated internal certificates and do not use the internal OS ones that all the apps rely on for connection.
    All in all thou, I think XP has served us pretty well.

    You will find the companion apps still function fine on XP for the time being thou.
    Take care,
