How to resolve Root CA Certificate message in JMeter – Windows 10

Recently, I have installed Windows 10 Technical Preview in my primary laptop at my own risk. Windows 10 works like a charm; though with known bugs. I have started testing testing tools such as HP LoadRunner, HP UFT, and Apache JMeter etc. in Windows 10 – Build 9879.

I have already installed above said software, I was able to install without any issues. The prerequisite is to install latest version of Java.

When I launched JMeter, it picked up the jar files from my UFT installation by loading HP UFT Java Support. Later I tried to record a new script by adding HTTP(S) Test Script Recorder and Thread Group.

I changed the proxy setting in my Internet Explorer and clicked on Start in JMeter. Once I clicked, I got following message.
