Good day,
I use Indy IdHTTP.Post via https (ssl).
  IdIOHandler: TElClientIndySSLIOHandlerSocket;
  MemoryCertStorage: TElMemoryCertStorage;
  ms: TMemoryStream;
  // PFX certificate is loaded into MemoryCertStorage
  IdIOHandler := TElClientIndySSLIOHandlerSocket.Create(nil);
  IdIOHandler.ClientCertStorage := MemoryCertStorage;
  IdHTTP.IOHandler := IdIOHandler;
  XmlRes := HTTP.Post('https://...', ms);

On my computer it works.
But on another computer on last line "XmlRes := HTTP.Post('https:..." occurs error "EElASN1ReadError with message 'Invalid size'".
On both computers use the same PFX certificate.

Thank you, Martin

Thank you for contacting us.

Its an internal error handled by SecureBlackbox code. Try to run the application outside the IDE - it should disappear.

The error happens during loading of some certificate, but it's not possible to definitely say what certificate is being loaded (the one sent by the server or one of certificates in Windows certificate storage etc).

Also does the error happen in IDE or outside of IDE? Such exceptions must be normally caught internally.

Sincerely yours
Eugene Mayevski
