CA Certificates on Windows (HTTPS):

To perform downloads using HTTPS, is necessary the ca-certificates. For default, Linux binaries read the certificates from /etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt, but with Windows binaries are necessary define the path of certificates.

You can define the path of the certificates permanently using aria2.conf located on C:\Users\<user>\.aria2\. If you use Windows XP, the file is located on C:\Documents and settings\<user>\.aria2\. For example, you just have to add the following line:

ca-certificate=C:\Program Files\aria2\certs\ca-certificates.crt

If you prefer load the certificates manually, you can use the following command:

C:\PATH\> aria2c --ca-certificate=<PATH-TO-CERTIFICATE> <URL>

Also, is possible disable the use of certificates with the following command:

C:\PATH\> aria2c --check-certificate=false <URL>
