    I have an important file which I can not decrypt anymore. I read the compatibility problems regarding JRE and downgraded to 1.4 (in combination with freemind 0.8.1) but this didn't solve the problem although it worked for other older encrypted files. I'm pretty upset because there seems to be no way I can access this data which means a lot to me anymore. I tried opening this file with a current JRE before if that makes a difference.

    In case anybody might be able to help me, please find below the error log (the part I would consider as relevant, with JRE 1.4 and freemind 0.8.1).

    Ok after reading some posts related to the new 0.9.0 beta I tried it with that one and :-))) it worked with JRE 1.4!

    From now on I will always keep a decrypted copy in an encrpyted folder… ;-)

    Anyway thanks a lot to the programmers and keep it going!

     
  • Can you describe in more detail what the problem was, under which configuration it originated, and how you have resolved the problem?

    I take it that you have created an encrypted mind map with some version of FreeMind and some version of Java JRE. Later on, you have changed either the version of FreeMind or the version of Java or both, and after that, you were no longer able to decrypt the encrypted mind map under the new configuration. You did some search in forums and you have found a solution.

    What were the versions of FreeMind and Java? How did you solve your problem? Thank you for any input.

    -Dan

    Sorry I don't remember what version that was, must have been either 0.8.0 or before, with updates lateron… but with 0.9.0 it looks like the problem is solved! I only couldn't retrieve the embedded pictures back, but that's not so important.
