I've tried to launch Mumble today but got this effort from Microsoft C++ instead:

A referral was returned by the server

What does it mean? How can I fix this?

Due to some kind of certificate snafu, Mumble 1.2.3 no longer works on Windows.

Uninstall Mumble, download the latest copy from the website and install that. This should keep your certificate, so you don't need to worry about incorrect passwords.

Run mumble in compatible mode (Windows XP SP3) with admin rights.
