    My PC was recently updated from Windows Vista to Windows Seven, Before the update some word files had been encrypted Since the update these files show as AXX files but I was given no option to decrypt and open them even though I know the Password I encrypted them with, in desperation I re downloaded Axcrypt again but I still cant decrypt these earlier files

    A screenshot would be helpful.

    What’s stopping you from downloading AxCrypt and decrypting your files? You know the password.

    This is what I get when I try opening an encrypted file

    Hello Bob David,

    I see what you’re doing now. It seems that you don’t have AxCrypt installed on your upgraded computer but that’s very easy to solve.

    As you’re on a fairly old operating system/computer, I’d recommend you download the same version of AxCrypt as you had before.

    Scroll down the page until you see “AxCrypt Outdated Downloads” and then download:


    As soon as you’ve downloaded¬†AxCrypt-1.7.3180.0-Setup.exe you need to install ist. Once you’ve done this you’ll be able to open your encrypted .AXX files just like you did before.
