Re: Can't install AESCrypt on windows 8.1 or Windows 10

In the ZIP file you downloaded is a text file that explains how to install the software. You're likely running setup.exe when you should be running aescrypt.msi.

Re: Java API questions (JAR distribution & input stream wrapping)

There's no official jar file. The intention was for developers to take this code and use it as they wish. And there's no official support on it. The author might respond to questions, though I've not been able to reach him for a while. I think that might be we're in our own as far as feature enhance...

Re: MAC GUI AESCrypt : does not ask for confirmation password !!!

I'd do that if Apple would allow me to do it. It's illegal to use a pirated version of OS X and Apple refuses to sell a license for use on virtual machines.

Re: AESCrypt install issue on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS

If the instructions worked, then everything is normal. You have to set the execution bit (chmod), which I assumed most people would know. When I have reason to publish a new update, I'll change the published file to a compressed tar file (tgz) so that the file permission is set properly. :)

Re: Project Still Active?

The current OpenID code is largely frozen. I would fix a security issue if discovered, but otherwise it's not changing. It works with what few sites still use OpenID. The issue is that people are now moving to OpenID Connect. I don't personally have a project related to OpenID Connect.

Re: MAC GUI AESCrypt : does not ask for confirmation password !!!

That's not a security risk, but it's unfortunate in that a typo could mean a file is lost forever.

Until that gets fixed, I'd suggest encrypting, renaming the file, then trying to decrypt. Renaming the file is important to avoid over-writing the original file. Doesn't matter which file is renamed.

Re: MAC GUI AESCrypt : does not ask for confirmation password !!!

You're right that AES Crypt should be asking for the password twice for verification. It was done that way on both Windows and Linux. I'm not sure why it's not on Mac. You are the first person to raise the issue, and that is surprising. When or if we can get an you're for Mac, I'll try to get that c...

Re: AESCrypt install issue on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS

As a follow-up, I just installed the software on Ubuntu 18.04. I had no trouble; worked fine.

Re: AESCrypt install issue on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS

That is just a compressed file, not a tar file. Do this at the command line: $ gunzip AESCrypt-GUI-3.11-Linux-x86_64-Install.gz $ chmod 755 AESCrypt-GUI-3.11-Linux-x86_64-Install $ ./AESCrypt-GUI-3.11-Linux-x86_64-Install That should work. I discovered that lubuntu was missing zenity in a recent rel...

Re: Different key lengths (for example, 128, 192, 256 bits)

That option doesn't exist. AES Crypt always uses 256 bit keys for maximum security.
