This message simply means that the Fiddler root certificate is not trusted.

If you hit this in Fiddler, you should disable HTTPS decryption (using Tools > Fiddler Options > HTTPS) and then reenable. Accept the prompt to trust the certificate.

If you hit this in FiddlerCore, did your FiddlerCore application manually trust the Fiddler root certificate? How did it do so? If you try to add the root to the MACHINE context store, the call will fail with Access Denied unless your FiddlerCore app is run as an administrator. When you add it to the USER context store, the request will show a dialog box before trusting the certificate.

Hello Eric,

We have used FiddlerCore.dll in an C# application. Following is our code to create and trust root-

The application does not require any user intervene and needs to work with same functionality for all users.

Kindly suggest.

===
bool bCreatedRootCertificate = false,
bTrustedRootCert = false;

                if (!Fiddler.CertMaker.rootCertExists())
                {
                    bCreatedRootCertificate = Fiddler.CertMaker.createRootCert();
                    if (!bCreatedRootCertificate) return false;
                }

                setMachineTrust(Fiddler.CertMaker.GetRootCertificate());

                if (!Fiddler.CertMaker.rootCertIsTrusted())
                {
                    bTrustedRootCert = Fiddler.CertMaker.trustRootCert();
                    if (!bTrustedRootCert) return false;
                }
===

private static bool setMachineTrust(X509Certificate2 oRootCert)
        {  
                X509Store certStore = new X509Store(StoreName.Root,
                                                    StoreLocation.LocalMachine);
                certStore.Open(OpenFlags.ReadWrite);

                try
                {
                    certStore.Add(oRootCert);
                }
                finally
                {
                    certStore.Close();
                }

                return true;           
        }

If you want setMachineTrust to function, your code must be run as an administrator. For obvious security reasons, you cannot reconfigure the machine's trusted certificate store unless you are running with Administrative permissions.

Thanks for your help Eric,

As mentioned we are using FiddlerCore and so now the Windows User (non- administrator)  is getting a dialog box for trusting the certificate.

If we use code signing certificate from Verisign, Is there a possibility to trust the certificate programmatically, and therefore avoid the dialog box for the user.

or are there any other ways to avoid the dialog box and still trust the cert.

Kindly let me know.
Thanks

There are two places to get the certificate trusted:

1. In the machine store (requires admin)
2. In the user store (does not require admin, does show prompt)

I've been told that there are ways to get the certificate in the user-store without showing the prompt, but they are not documented by Microsoft.
 
Generally speaking, your best bet would be to have your installer (running as admin) trust the certificate.
