I have QC10 Starter eval installed on a vista system. When I try to load QC, I get the message ../install/test_type.cab this file didn't pass signature checking. I've tried googleing this problem and tried all of the recommendations, yet the problem persists. Help please!
What browser/version are you using? If you are using IE8 then there are some additional steps that must be completed to make it compatible with QC. First open the browser and go into tools/Compatibility settings and add the IP or domain such as redhat.com to the compatibility settings. Next go into Tools/Internet Options in the IE8 browser. Under the advanced tab, turn off the "Enable memory protection to help mitigate online attacks" option. This option is turned off in IE7 and is turned on by default in IE8, which prevents the browser-based application from loading. Restart the browser session and verify the proper operation of your application.
Apply the most recent patch for Quality Center (QC) 10.00, since this only affects the based QC 10.00 install (Contact HP Software Support in order to obtain the latest patches). In some cases, after applying the patch, it may be required to run the QC Client Uninstall utility (http://support.openview.hp.com/selfsolve/document/KM176290)
If a patch cannot be applied to the QC 10.00 server, then the following two workarounds can be used for the interim:
1. Install the QC Client Side (This can be downloaded from the addins page of QC. Navigate to http://servername:portnumber/qcbin >Add-ins page>HP Quality Center Client Side Setup)
2. Install QC Explorer from the QC add-ins page and use that instead of Internet Explorer. QC Explorer can be downloaded from the link below:
NOTE: Please make sure to install the correct patch for the correct QC 10 edition. Patches for the QC 10 Enterprise and Premier edition (as found on the SSO) cannot be installed with the QC 10 Starter edition and vice versa. Starter edition patches can be obtained from Support, together with the installation instructions.
