Just installed 2 1 1606 and get “Exception during processing of xxxxxxxxxxxxx
(Cannot allow encryption with an empty password. > Cannot allow encryption with an empty password. (ProcessExit)”
I open a file that is encrypted. That file opens the program it’s assigned to. All seems to work fine. The data looks fine. Then, when I close the program, the error appears. The program is Ace Money.
This is how I’ve been opening Ace Money for years and it’s always worked fine with Axcrypt until today. I’ve no idea what the message refers to.
Any ideas ?October 2, 2020 at 12:19 #18054
A little more info … I’ve just seen 2 more versions of the message
(SessionChange) and (WorkFolderchange) instead of (ProcessExit)
What is it complaining about ?October 5, 2020 at 12:13 #18161
Hello Colin Hoppe,
AxCrypt will not encrypt .tmp file.
AxCrypt app tries to re-encrypt the file that time you have to sign out or Automatically sign out from the AxCrypt app. so you will get the dialog ”cannot allow..”.
Please check that time you have a sign-in to the AxCrypt app or not? Please sign in to the AxCrypt app and check some other files.
(SessionChange) and (WorkFolderchange) instead of (ProcessExit) What is it complaining about ? -Please explain more about the issue and contact to our support team firstname.lastname@example.org. we are happy to help you to resolve the same.October 5, 2020 at 12:55 #18166
I’m not sure whether what you suggest is relevant. None of the files were new.
However, I can probably tell you something more about what happened …
I’ve been using Axcrypt for years and it’s been fine.
I simply installed this new version without uninstalling the old version. This has worked fine previously, but for this new version, something is different and this is why it gave me error messages.
Anyone installing from scratch, with the new version, has to (not quite sure I remember correctly now, but …) create an account and provide an an email address.
Well I already had an account from years back, but the problems went away after I logged in (which I never do ordinarily) – and probably gave or confirmed, my email address.
In other words, the new version expects something that previous versions did not ie an account and a need to log in.
Since I logged in, the error messages stopped and it’s all been fine.October 7, 2020 at 10:08 #18200
Hello Colin Hoppe
You cannot have both AxCrypt 1.x and 2.x installed at the same time/system. Please uninstall the old version(1.x) and restart the system then use the latest version(2.x). Now check the same again. still, if you have a problem, please write the email to email@example.com with detailed information and a screenshot.
AxCrypt 1.x and 2.x are compatible in the sense that 2.x can open all files secured with 1.x.
Files secured with AxCrypt 2.x are not possible to open with AxCrypt 1.x.
Anyone installing with the new version, to create an account and provide an email address. The email address is mandatory for the latest version(2.x).October 7, 2020 at 18:50 #18203
I haven’t been on v1 for a very long time.
I simply went from 2 1 1598 to 2 1 1606October 8, 2020 at 09:23 #18205
