You are correct: it is a permissions issue. When I move the .exe file to a subfolder on the hard drive (which changes the permissions), there is no problem in decrypting the file on the hard drive (or in encrypting a file to a .exe file, if I use AxCrypt 1.7.3156).
I’m sorry you’ve removed the self-decrypter option from AxCrypt 2; I have found it convenient for encrypting email attachments sent to recipients who haven’t installed AxCrypt, or any other encryption software.
Thanks for your response. I’ve been using AxCrypt 1 for several years and have found it very useful for my purposes.
