Check for publisher’s certificate revocation


Cognos Controller 10.1.1

Microsoft Windows 2008 R2 server

Citrix server


Cognos Controller client program is slow to start. The citrix server that run the Cognos Controller client have no access to internet. When checking the Internet Explorer settings for  “Check for publisher’s certificate revocation” it is marked. Removing the mark, makes the program start faster.



You can force the setting in Internet explorer for the user by create a power shell script, and then make it run before the users starts the cognos controller client on the citrix server.

Below a example of a script to update the registry:

# Change registry key to uncheck IE security setting: “Check for publisher’s certificate revocation”


  Set-Location “HKCU:\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WinTrust\Trust        Providers\Software Publishing”

Set-ItemProperty . State “dword:00023e00”
