    Just installed AxCrypt2. Opening a file by left button double click no longer works the way it used to. It brings up an AxDecrypt popup that says “to decrypt a file, select it with the open menu choice, and the press the Decrypt button”. It used to just prompt for the password the open the file. How do I get back to that?

    I tried going to and entering a passphrase … no help.

    I am able to right click->axcrypt->decrypt to produce an unencrypted file then open the resulting file with a double click.

    Hello Lar,

    Do check the lower left corner of your screen shot – you should probably change those now…

    Anyway – you don’t have AxCrypt 2 installed. For some reason also you have associated .axx with ‘AxDecrypt.exe’ (which is an old software part of the AxCrypt 1 distribution). This cannot happen automatically, but is rather something you’ve done – probably inadvertently, but still.

    Download the setup installer from the download section of https://www.axcrypt.net/ and install it (double-click it after downloading, and follow the instructions).

    Lar,

    Download AxCrypt 2 using this link:

    https://www.axcrypt.net/downloads/4519/

    This’ll fix your problem, and don’t forget to change your passwords once set you’ve set a new password for AxCrypt2.
