Problem opening key file

    I originally had a master password for the keyfile, but decided to remove the master password since I found it too annoying to have to enter it every time I open keepass.

    Now when I try to open the key file without any master password, it says  Failed to load the specific file! The composite key is Invalid!

    I then entered the original master password and it says the same thing. How am I suppose to open it now?

    I meant I use a keyfile and password. I removed the master password, but still used the key file. It wont open.

    On the Enter Master Key dialog, try opening with the database with the Master Password unchecked, then checked.  A blank Master Password is not the same as no Master Password. 

    Do you have a backup copy of the original database?  What operating system are you using?
