First things first.
The current version of AxCrypt is 2.1.1534 and was released on the 23-08-2017. Your version (2.1.1489) was released on 15-12-2016. Try updating to that and then restarting your computer.
It sounds like you’re doing everything right.
When signing up to version 2 you should use a super-secure password; you’ve used the original password for version 1 which is fine.
You should be able to open the version 1 file in version 2.
If you’re still stuck then the workaround is to download “AxDecrypt.exe” and decrypt your file; it doesn’t require installation and works for version 1 files only. Once you’ve decrypted it you can encrypt it in version 2 and you’re fixed :-)
Don’t forget to install the latest version of AxCrypt 2 first as that may solve your problem without the workaround!
