Password no accepted on encrypted file

15 posts in this topic

I created a file with Meo with an output of executable. It processes fine. When I open it, it asks for a psw. I give the psw, and it returns a message "empty passwords are not allowed". Sounds like a bug. Any ideas?

I am having the same problem ... getting the Empty password error message when a password is entered. Did anyone ever get a solution to this problem? If so, any help would be appreciated. thanks

Greetings Everyone,

 

We apologize for the difficulties you are experiencing, and are working on a solution. Any information you are willing and able to provide about the computers on which this problem is occurring would be much appreciated. If anyone experiencing this bug is willing to install a debug version and send in a trace file, it would help tremendously. If you would like to help in this manner, please let me know.

 

 

Also, while we are attempting to fix the problem, it will probably help you to know that when MEO is run as a command line tool it does not have this problem. I know it's not quite as convenient, but at least you can get your data.

My files are self extracting files (.exe). and running them from the command prompt or windows powershell has the same result.

Found it......!!!!!

 

Well in my case any way. I use win7 and start menu x. If I exit start menu x MEO works fine if I restart Start Menu X I get the no empty password error.

 

I hope this helps guys...

Hi,

 

Just found this thread, but afraid i am no closer to solving the problem. I really am not very technically minded, and couldnt make head nor tail of Dave's post... what is menu X?

 

I am using windows 7, and i have a number of encrypted folders which I really need to open as they contain really important work stuff, and I am close to panicking...

 

Any help? A step by step guide would be much appreciated for a technical buffoon....!

I have the same trouble as Butz and the others. I saw no posts since March, no replies or hints from technical support. HOW CAN I DO??? If Peacorp or someone else found how to open crypted files PLEASE let me know!! Carlottaj

Menu x is a windows front end that makes launching programs easier. I think there is some keyboard capture that is stopping MEO seeing the password. So stop anything that is running one thing at a time untill it works. Then you will know what program to stop to get MEO to work.

Yes, same problem, MEO encrypted *exe file worked fine when I created it a year ago, now when I enter the password it returns the msg about not accepting an empty password, Hope I can resole the problem son as there are my previous 4 years of tax forms encoded there.

 

I will try Menu X whatever that is.

 

Thanks forum people for being here so I know I am not alone with this!

I am having this problem on a Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bi Gateway with dual core AMD processor. All software is up to date. The self extracting ME *exe worked fine when created a year ago. Only just now trying decrypt I get the msg "empty passwords not accepted". Downloaded another v.2.17 and still will not open the file. No luck with the Menu X either.

OK, I just tried to run the *.exe self extracting file from the DOS command prompt. Likewise, no luck. Still asking for and not accepting the password.

 

Again, thank god and all the trees for hard copy. his

I ran this on the DOS command line and still did not work.
