Not being able to forward data from Windows UF to Splunkcloud

Explorer

I am having trouble forwarding data to Splunk cloud from a Windows host. Previously, Linux deployments gave no issues.

Seeing the following error, which I have researched and have not come to any conclusions.

TcpOutputProc - 'sslCertPath' deprecated; use 'clientCert' instead

The cert path itself looks good until further down the splunkd.log where the unix convention of forward slashes causes another error.

ERROR SSLCommon - Can't read certificate file C:\Program Files\SplunkUniversalForwarder\etc/apps/app/default/app_server.pem errno=33558530 error:02001d23562:system library:fopen:No such file or directory

Would like to know ways this has been solved before.
Thank you

Have you tried getting the latest UF package from your Splunk Cloud stack, or Splunk Administrator? I would start there...

I am using UF version 8.0.2 and Splunk cloud is version 7.2.9

Noted here, an X in a cell indicates
that this version of forwarder can
send event data to the corresponding
version of indexer.

According to the docs, it should be compatible
