Enable TLS 1.2 / Strong Crypto in Windows .net Player


By default, the Windows .net Player uses the standard crypto libraries provided by the Microsoft .net Framework.

If you need to use a CMS that provides only TLS 1.2 connections, then you will need to ensure you set the following registry settings:

###32 bit machines

Key: HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\.NetFramework\v4.0.30319\SchUseStrongCrypto
Value: 1

###64 bit machines

Key: HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\.NetFramework\v4.0.30319\SchUseStrongCrypto
Value: 1
