Yesterday my desktop crashed rather hard again and I decided that it is time to reinstall Windows again. I backed everything up onto an external Maxtor hard drive, including several copies of my .pwa files. I also have Password Agent on my laptop and tried to open the .pwa file (the one on the external hard drive) but get the following error message:
READING FILE FAILED. ACCESS IS DENIED
When looking at properties (General -> Advanced -> Details) of the file I see that an encryption was enabled. Under "Users who can transparently access this file" it lists the name of the desktop as well as a "Certification Thumbprint".
I do not remember enabling the encryption but figure it is part of the security system. However, I cannot open, copy, cut&paste, that file and am REALLY worried that I cannot get to my passwords anymore.
I am having almost the exact same problem. I have not had sort of crash or re-boot issue, but a week ago I used the program with no problems and today when I attempt to open the program I receive READING FILE FAILED. THE SYSTEM CANNOT FIND THE FILE SPECIFIED. The file has not moved or been tampered with in anyway. I am also unable to open any of the backup files (same message). I am screwed without this program! HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!
