What you describe is something I have no knowledge of, so treat my advice with caution.
However, if the problem appears only to be caused by this computer not having an internet connection, but is attempting to update the Root Certificates, then why not turn that off?
Microsoft has guidance about that here;
As to your question, if the symptoms seem to be that the system locks up when it attempts to connect to the internet to update the Root Certificates, then yes, the connections could be interrupted.
I hope that helps.
I work for a company that uses an ethernet connection and a netgear switch to connect a bunch of trucks together, and then software on the main computer to control all the different trucks and display the data off the trucks, rates, pressures, engine diagnostics etc.
Lately I have had an issue with the software on the main computer locking up. When I checked the event viewer the last couple of times I had a crypt32 error right around the time the software froze. Now I understand why this is happening, because windows is trying to update the root certificates, and I'm not connected to the internet.
The questions I have are:
Do you think it's possible that windows trying to update the root certificates could interfere with the connection between the main computer and the pumps, even for just a split second, to interrupt the software?
And also how would I go about trying to recreate the windows certificate update to see if I can make this issue happen again? Is there a program that runs to update the certificates? I've tried searching the internet and can't find a name or anything.
Any help would be greatly appreciated,
