If you cannot activate your MapTiler Desktop software due to an SSL/TLS certificate problem, this article will show you how to fix the issue. The issue is caused by the fact that MapTiler Desktop is not able to securely communicate with the licensing server.
This problem was fixed in MapTiler Desktop 11.3. Proceed to the download section.
What's causing the trouble
The issue occurs due to a TLS or certificate error, which is most probably caused by MITM (man-in-the-middle) attempts on corporate networks, or, if on Unix operating systems (macOS, Linux, BSD, etc.), it's caused by out-of-date or missing "CA certificates". This means either keeping your system itself up-to-date or manually updating the CA certs.
- Open Internet Explorer (or Microsoft Edge) and type "https://wyday.com" in the browser window. If it does work, try again activation within MapTiler Desktop
- Disable, stop or pause any firewall, or an anti-virus/anti-malware program and try the activation again. It seems that something on the computer is blocking or "filtering" communication to/from our Desktop application
- You can also try the activation process using Safe mode. If you succeed, then you need to configure your computer correctly and add our MapTiler Desktop software into the whitelist (or exclude it from scanners)
- Open Safari browser and type "https://wyday.com" in the browser window. If it does work, try again activation within MapTiler Desktop
- Follow the same steps as for Windows - deactivate any firewall or other 3rd party software, try activation in Safe mode of macOS (see the support article)
Linux / BSD
Open any browser and type "https://wyday.com" in the browser window. If it does work, try again activation within MapTiler Desktop
Update or install CAcerts:
- CentOS / Fedora: read this article
- Debian / Ubuntu based distribution:
apt-get install ca-certificates
- On Linux and BSD, valid CAcerts must be installed on the machine and must be installed in the same location. MapTiler Desktop checks for the CAcerts in the following locations and order and stops at the first one found (whether or not it contains valid and up-to-date certificates):
SSL_CERT_FILE environment variable
