Problems with PDF from grid when https is forced

Has anyone been able to export to PDF from a grid when the server forces a secure (https) connection. I have looked at the log file that is created and if I change to a local file instead of using the server path (https) the PDF is created. The wkhtmltopdf file does not support encrypted files. If you have found a workaround please let me know. So far Scriptcase tech support after a while they just let the matter drop. I have pointed out exactly where the problem lies and even the solution for a possible fix in their code but to no avail for a few years now.

The only solution to handle this from my end is to not force a secure internet connection but that could be a real security issue with the many users that work with my programming.
