The error message in question is typically seen when a 3rd party PKI security package is installed and interfering with the creation of certificates.
It's not clear to me what exactly you've tried so far. Often, the simplest fix is to just install the Fiddler CertMaker add-on: http://fiddler2.com/r/?fiddlercertmaker
Beautiful. It seems my problem is solved.
However, now any SSL traffic within my browser (or phone, when I connect remotely) are not working due to the normal "Your connection is not private" error which does not allow me to continue either within a desktop browser, or my phone (Android)
I have already installed Fiddler's root certificate in both my laptops "Trusted" cert store and installed it on Android, for both "Wi-fi" and "VPN and Apps" but it does not seem to be working.
If you send the exact text of the error page in Internet Explorer, I'd be happy to help you. Please be sure to include your Fiddler version number from Help > About, as well as the text from Fiddler's LOG tab.
Typically, the problem is that the client has previously trusted an old (and different) Fiddler root certificate and you need to remove that old certificate before attempting to trust the new one.
I am unable to edit or delete any posts it seems, but please disregard my question.
Once one installs FiddlerCertMaker addon, it appears you have to re-export and re-install the FiddlerRoot cert on any devices. This solved my issue.
