A certificate chain could not be built to a trusted root authority

Today I tried installing .NET 4.6.2 onto an offline WIndows 7 to setup playnite.

Every since I built my PiCade I’ve been huge into loaders, almost all of them seem to rely on RetroArch for an old game emulation which is fine by me. Check out those sites for their respective offerings. My PiCade uses Lakka which is just a different loader that I find is rather well compiled for ARM based devices such as the Pi. They do offer a x86-64 build however I found that since it’s a linux derivative you have to be pretty Linux swanky to do good with it, by that I mean supporting hardware can be a bit more difficult as you have to be able to get the drivers for certain hardware yourself, in my case using an old HP laptop with an ATI card inside it was CPU rendering everything so N64 and Dreamcase would CHUGGGG, even though the system is way more than capable.

Anyway… Playnite only has one dependency for Windows, thats .NET 4.6.2, so when I downloaded the offline installer I didn’t expect issues, until…

Error! A certificate chain could not be built to a trusted root authority.

Ughhh ok… Google… wtf does that mean? MS says

Grab their certificate

install using elevated cmd with…

certutil -addstore root X:\Where\you\saved\the\Cert.crt

Sure enough after this I was successfully able to install .NET 4.6.2

WinXP a Timeless Classic

Something about it that I loved, I rocked the vista themed copy for so long, you know when the Vista Fiasco was the Windows 8 fisaco, that was the uhhh yeah anyway…

Just look at that dark epic theme, a couple pieces of junk, but nothing modern live tiles brings… a Japanese checkers board to appease someone with the shortest attention span one could ever imagine. But not this classic beauty, just look at that recycle bin, made from fine glass.

Holy ball sacks, I was able to download Chrome via IE7 and it worked… in 2019!!

That’s just amazing, chrome supported XP till 2015, if there’s a die hard OS, XP was it. Holy crap… there’s people still commenting about this… like now…

Well, if you’re lucky like me and my old netbook, they manufacture made and it’s third party hardware peeps made drivers up till Windows 7, so I managed to install Windows 7 with an SSD and my old laptop is great, regardless of how many people complain on these comments, haha. 😀 Which is crazy considering…

Yes, Windows 7 Extended support is coming up… Another Solid beast I hope gets the extended life support it deserves. :D.

This was pretty much just a blah post but whatever… xP

I just needed a VM to test my OPNsense VM lol, figured I had the old ISO why not…
