    I read the PDF to find out if this is finally 64 bit compatible (it wasn't when I made the original thread for v0.0.0.1) but apparently it is still not 64 bit compatible :(

    My wait continues...

    On a positive note, I noticed that the source if now available:
    https://github.com/juliensobrier/https-erverywhere-ie

    I wonder if he's noticed the typo yet...

    Thanks for the heads up. Even though I never use IE other than for Windows Updates I'll add this to it.

    Like previous versions I still can't even get it to work on Windows 7 x86 IE10. :blink: Nothing happens, at all.

    I have tried with default IE10 settings, there's no group policy setting enabled for IE...

    The only thing I got that could be the culprit is that I disabled elevation of files not digitally signed. Not sure if this is messing with it, somehow. Otherwise, I just don't know what's happening here. :ouch:

    Well nevermind... this thing breaks Windows Update, at least with IE8 on XP Pro SP3. Since that's all I use IE for anyway, it was pretty pointless to install anyway. And since it breaks the only thing I use IE for... utterly purpose defeating.

    Should have known not to install something with a version number of "0"...

    At least it was easy to determine the cause of the error, since this was the only thing I've changed on my box in the past month. Otherwise I would have been completely lost looking for the solution, as it gave me an error code (0x80070002) that didn't provide any relevant information whatsoever for what the cause actually was. I'd have been combing through a bunch of crap and risking fudging things up with "Fix It's".

    So a heads up if anyone else gets that error message trying to update XP after installing this thing.

    Hmmmm I'm going to steer clear if people are having nothing but problems. Such a shame since https everywhere is such a great tool for security on Chrome & Firefox..

    Bugger. Exact same result when using Windows Update on XPSP3.
    Not sure if it has anything to do with a certificate error that pops up when you'd manually type --https://windowsupdate.microsoft.com-- in IE8.
    I've contacted the dev to learn if it's a known issue/being worked on.

    A new IE10 version came out today, and HTTPS Everywhere works now. Unfortunately, it won't run when running InPrivate mode. :( Is this a limitation?

    -edit-

    It's working in InPrivate mode as well. I had the option to disable extensions in this mode enabled. :D

    Glad it works fine now!

    I believe I may have found some bug in this IE version.

    There's an entry for both (www.)agnitum.com in the rules file, but it won't redirect to the https version of it; it keeps on the http version.

    HTTPS Everywhere for Google Chrome properly redirects to the https version, so it's not an issue on the Agnitum's website lack support for it.

    Maybe an issue between the server and IE10, and for some reason HTPPS Everywhere won't redirect?

    Can anyone confirm? Check -http://www.agnitum.com
