It seems to me that the Log Viewer.exe is missing on your system or something else. I think reinstalling Messenger Plus! Live is the first and easiest thing you can try to solve the problem..

RE: Encrypting, decrypting etc. of Plus! chatlogs
Okay I looked around and did not see this posted anywhere yet.

I recently reinstalled my OS and thus re-installed all my programs. I had copied my former chat logs (which are encrypted) to another HD for backup. With the fresh version of messenger and MPL installed I tried to open up the old chat logs. To no success.
I tried all the tricks and methods listed here, and I do not even get a prompt from windows to confirm if I want to change or reset or delete my encryption password.
All it says is this :

The specified file couldn't be opened for read access.

I would really like to be able to open those logs again!!!

Any suggestions?

Thanks

My guess is that this is a security issue. You need to take ownership of the files, they're probably still marked with your old user id (SID).

Chat log password cannot be recovered, if you lost your password, there is no way to open the logs.

I'm having the same problem as jolhof, I've just reformatted and wanted to check something in my logs, which I had transferred to a jump drive.

They are encrypted, but when I go to decrypt them, I get a window saying, "An error has occurred while trying to decrypt your file. Please reboot or try again on another computer."

I've rebooted, but nothing happened.

I'm UNIMPRESSED~

And sad.

So it'd be wondrous if someone could answer this for me.

EDIT: It seems more like it's one particular log. That I need to get into REALLY BADLY.

;-;~

I'm experiencing the same problem as Aeolyn...the same error message occurs for me too and I've rebooted numerous times as well as restoring to a previous point in time and still nothing!

anyone know what's going on here? only change I've had was installing mozilla firefox - so to try amend the problem I even uninstalled my firefox but to no avail arghhhhh!

some enlightment on the issue would be great.

Hey Aeolyn, does the problem still persist or have you found an antidote? share if you please and anybody's assistance also!


cheers :)

Ive managed to use the Start - Run option to decrypt a file which kept coming up error before.

But where does the files go.

It appears in the same folder as the original encrypted log but then dissapears :o

Using also the /Partial key while decrypting may help to have a permanent decrypted file in the folder.
