Cause Found: Creo will not let user register server because of self signed certificate
We found the cause, but don't know why. The issue is Creo is reading a config.pro in an area where it shouldn't be looking. We have no idea why it's looking there for a config.pro. Renaming the file fixed the problem.
We found this by going to Support info and looking at the configuration files loaded. This thread is inactive and closed by the PTC Community Management Team.

Is d:\proilink defined as the Home or the Start-In folder? Does the user have a mapkey running at startup that loads that config.pro file? Did the user run a mapkey that loads that config.pro? Any toolkit application running at startup?
How Pro/ENGINEER Reads Configuration Files at Startup
Pro/ENGINEER reads configuration files automatically from several areas. If a particular option is present in more than one configuration file, Pro/ENGINEER applies the most recently loaded/read setting.
At startup, Pro/ENGINEER first reads in a protected system configuration file called config.sup. It then searches for and reads in configuration files (config.pro, config.win, menu_def.pro) from the following directories in the following order:
1. loadpoint/text (loadpoint is the Pro/ENGINEER installation directory): Your system administrator may have put configuration files in this location to support company standards for windows configuration settings, formats and libraries. Any user starting Pro/ENGINEER from this loadpoint uses the values in this file.
2. Login directory: This is the home directory for your login ID. Placing your configuration files here lets you start Pro/ENGINEER from any directory without having a copy of the files in each directory.
3. Startup directory: This is your current or working directory when you start Pro/ENGINEER.
