More compat issues with Non-Java version

    I am using the Windows Password Safe version 3.17 (2628), and I am trying to migrate to jpwsafe on linux 0.8-beta1.107.

    jpwsafe can open a new password db from Password Safe (pwsafe-test.psafe3), but jpwsafe can't open my existing Password Safe. It just throws up an "incorrect password" error.

    I have tried to use pwsafe-3.17 to merge my existing pw DB into the new DB, but after doing so, jpwsafe-0.8-beta1 can no longer open the pw db.

      Hi Ericjln,

      as you might have seen (latest lpwsafe news item), there is a bug in Beta1 regarding non-trivial passphrases.

      Apart from this there is probably a problem with the latest Passwordsafe Version, as a new field was introduced with it (This is a bug, see

      Both issues will be solved before beta2. If you like you can be a pre beta2 tester to insure your problems are solved ;-)

      Second experiment:

      using pwsafe-3.17, I created a newDB.psafe3. I create 1 entry in newDB.psafe3, save, and quit pwsafe-3.17

      I then open newDB.psafe3 with jpwsafe-0.80beta1, add a second entry, save, and quit.

      Finally, I try again to open newDB.psaf3 with pwsafe-3.17. It gives error about bad password or corrupted database. I quit and try to open with jpwsafe-0.8beta1, and it gives the "incorrect password" error.
