I have the same problem. My files were originally encrypted with Version 1.7.3156.0. After installing Version 2.1.1547.0, when I tried to decrypt a file I got the message “incorrect password”. I would have to reinstall Version 2.1 to get the exact wording. I tried to decrypt many files. Always the same result.
I actually use a pass phrase which has spaces in it. Thinking I had forgotten my pass phrase, I uninstalled Version 2.1 and reinstalled Version 1.7. I was able to instantly decrypt my files using the same pass phrase I had been unsuccessfully using with Version 2.1.
Thus I am pretty sure I know what the pass phrase is. Any ideas what the problem is? Does using a phrase with spaces make a difference? Thanks
