HTA using XMLHttpRequest calling https URL fails with WinINET code 12004 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hoping somebody has seen this type of issue or knows how to resolve.

    I have a local HTA application that already makes https call to URL 1. For new project I added another https call to URL 2. The URL 2 call works for http but fails with https with error code 12004. The error code tells me nothing about what the issue might be.

    Oddly enough, if I try the same https call using SoapUI the call works; if I run Fiddler and then try my HTA, the https call then starts working.

    I have checked everything I can think of on my local machine, IE settings, latest windows updates, etc but nothing fixes the issue. On other machines that have IE8 the error code is 12019.
