Thanks for the prompt response.
I don’t understand why the the later version would not open the documents I encrypted with the earlier version? I have managed to load these now by downloading the earlier 1.x version and using the password I used originally. But this did not work with the later version? I used the 1.x version on a W7 machine and all was OK for a few years, when I recently moved to a W10 PC and downloaded the latest AxCrpyt, that would not allow me to unencrypt with the password I used with the 1.x version?
