Minion not works

Minion has been starting very slowly for a few hours. Download current versions fail due to message network error. The connection to the Minion website is extremely slow.

I have had this problem when traveling with my VPN active. Disconnecting the VPN seemed to fix it. I just reconnect after the update. Of course Minion shouldn't behave this way, but working around freeware weirdness is part of our computer lives

Well: Either you are a bot writing here, or this just sounds wrong what you write.

It's the VPN's reason than, using an IP address that maybe is blocked somewhere in Cloudflare or any other network company or node that ESOUI network is using to protect tehmselves!
e.g. because anyone using the same VPN software caused issues or for whatever reason at any website in the net which was protected by the same software department that the internet and especially esoui relies on, as they were using the same IP address that you now got from that VPN.

That's not Minion blocking it nor Minion's fault in behaving wrong!

This morning Minion tells me that it cannot connect to the Internet. I'm running it for ESO on Windows 11, it's the latest version, and honestly, I don't know what the cause is. This PC is about a month old now and so far this would connect just fine, every morning.

I am having this same problem today. Minion has worked fine every day since I installed it years ago, up through yesterday, and nothing changed on my computer overnight.
And obviously my internet connection is working.

Guessing by the "x viewing" number where I can see that this board is now being read by hundreds of instances, I think this might be a mass phenomena and might be unrelated to the computers it's running on, client-side, maybe.

It seems to be a java issue according to the log file, so I tried the IPv6 > IPv4 switch thing via the Windows CMD prompt from Page 1 of this thread, but it didn't fix the issue.
I'm afraid I'm not quite savvy enough to have any other ideas that haven't already been mentioned...
(I checked firewall, etc.)

Oh... "unable to find valid certification path..." So... the ssl certificate thing? I'll check that link regarding PKIX path on the first page...

Same issue, must be java cert or some Minion specific connection required on startup issue (e.g. some site it needs to access being down or whatever)

Same as user above, looking at minion.log after getting error unable to connect, it is really some sort of java cert error (according to the log message, no idea if that is just some placeholder message or really what it means)

Minion addon worked to refresh data and dload new apps as of ~5 hours prior, e.g. yesterday Thur ~7:30pm PST. Failed to connect ~12:30am PST Friday.

With 300+ ppl looking at this forum, when there are usually barely 0 to 2 ppl - would seem logical to conclude this is NOT a local computer issue (e.g. proxy connection, not white listing minion into firewall settings, the usual local PC/user error).

I assume this is either as log says, an expired java cert which triggered as of today calendar date (since it connected just fine the prior calendar day), or something that triggers that error message for another server side reason.

Angry Same

Same situation with the same message when launching. I have years of computer experience, and this seems like something on the server side. All other programs are working, so it's not an Internet connection issue. I even tried flushing DNS settings, no change. I don't know why they don't move away from JAVA as most others have. JAVA's just a headache waiting to happen, case in point.

Having the same issue

Hi! I live in the USA. I do not use a VPN. I don't use wifi on my computer. I only use Ethernet to connect to the internet. I am on a PC. Windows 10.
I gave Minion access through my Firewall when I first installed it and just checked to make sure that hasn't changed. It still has permission via Windows Firewall. I also run Minion as Administrator.
I also checked Windows Defender to be sure it hasn't all of a sudden decided to label Minion as a virus and found nothing there. I just used Minion around 10 pm CT (US) and when I just went to use it at around 2:30 am CT (US) I now get the same error "Minion is unable to connect to the Internet" as others have stated.


Need help please.
EDIT...I found this. Hope it helps identify the issue (What I see is a java certificate issue):

not a firewall issue...

1. not a firewall issue, same outcome with firewall off or on
2. not a client-side issue (unless it's a programmatic problem with the client itself)
3. obviously with this many users experiencing the same issue starting at approximately the same time, it's either a windows or java update issue (happened to me when I rebooted btw) or something on the server side has changed

Red face Same....

I'm reassured - it hasn't been working here in Germany since today...

Yesterday I changed some drive letters - so I suspected this was the problem and tried a few things including reinstalling (also Java) etc... should have read here first....

...or did you all change your drive letters yesterday?

the java version works for me and connects fine, while the exe version doesnt connect. so yes its most likely a problem with the latest windows update.

My Windows didn't update though. So I'm not sure why I have the same issue.

Minion get http 301 moved permanaently for api.mmoui.com and cdn.mmoui.com

Hi,

this morning here in Germany minion didn't any content from api.mmoui.com and cdn.mmoui.com so that is the reason why minion stops working for me.

Sniffertrace shows HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently for both api.mmoui.com and cdn.mmoui.com

Without properly working web servers the windows client is useless
Nothing to fix on the client until the servers are back or update of new destination.
