It looks like version 1 of AxCrypt has a problem the “grave accent” character —->> `
If I encrypt a file with version 1 using the sample password below, version 2 will not decrypt the file unless I remove the grave accent from the password.
nbOy5`qmA90$miCR (password entered to encrypt with version 1)
nbOy5qmA90$miCR (password needed to decrypt with version 2, with accent character removed)
I don’t know if other characters cause this issue. I discovered this when certain version 1 encrypted files would not decrypt with version 2.
This is essentially correct. AxCrypt 1 disallows many such characters. If you look carefully when you enter the password in v1 you’ll see it is in fact not accepted. There should even be a ‘beep’.
We’ll change it so v2 will try v1 files with v1 illegal chars filtered out as well.
That explains it, thanks.
