Running environment is as follows:
Word starter 14.0.6129.5000 32 bit
Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64 bit
* Axcrypt 1.7.3156
Axcrypt worked as expected on this system for well over a year. No explicit updates to any listed components aside from the regular MS stream of updates.
A couple of months ago, I started seeing issues with Axcrypt and my Word files.
I would open an encrypted Word file - success
make changes , save and close - apparent success but the file would not appear in the directory as being updated
if the file was attempted to be opened again, an error message would result - screen capture included - indicating the file was still in use
if I checked the process list there would be two or three Axcrypt processes running
nothing I could do at the file level would get this to close
if I killed the running Axcrypt processes, I could re-open the Word file. The changes previously made would be absent.
This sequence of events happens consistently over a number of different Word files.
This does not happen with text files, PDT+F, files or Excel files.
This feels like some new unwanted interaction coming from Word . I haven't seen this reported in any Axcrypt post.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
