FIX: You cannot open a secure site in Internet Explorer on a Windows CE 5.0-based device

You connect to a secure site by using Microsoft Internet Explorer on a Windows CE 5.0-based device. After you click Yes on the Security Alert dialog box to accept the security certificate of the site, the secure site does not open. Instead, you receive the following message:
The page cannot be displayed
Note This problem does not occur on a Windows Embedded CE 6.0-based device.
This problem occurs because the Crypt32.dll file does not handle the PolicyConstraints attribute in the certificate correctly. Therefore, a certificate that has this attribute cannot be processed.
