Decryption error

I am trying to decrypt a string encrypted in Java.  My decryption code is below, but it generates a CryptographicException "The object cannot be found" on the line:
    X509Certificate2 myCertificate = new X509Certificate2(@"c:\signon_keystore.p12", password);
What am I doing wrong to decrypt this?


        static void Start(string[] args)
        {
            StreamReader sr = new StreamReader(File.OpenRead(@"c:\Source.txt"));
            string source = sr.ReadToEnd();
            string data = Regex.Match(source, "(?<=user=)([^&]*)").Value;
            string signData = Regex.Match(source, "(?<=authSignature=)(.*$)", RegexOptions.Multiline).Value;
            bool isTrue = VerifyData(HttpUtility.UrlDecode(data), HttpUtility.UrlDecode(signData));
            MessageBox.Show(isTrue.ToString());
        }

        static bool VerifyData(string data, string signature)
        {
            string password = "123456";
            X509Certificate2 myCertificate = new X509Certificate2(@"c:\signon_keystore.p12", password);
            RSACryptoServiceProvider provider1 = (RSACryptoServiceProvider)myCertificate.PublicKey.Key;
            byte[] sb = Convert.FromBase64String(signature);
            byte[] db = (new ASCIIEncoding()).GetBytes(data);
            return provider1.VerifyData(db, new SHA1CryptoServiceProvider(), sb);
        }

Your key file might have problem.
Where do you get the key file?

I got the key file from our java team.  They are using it to encrypt, and I have been told that another java app is decrypting with it.  Unfortunately I have trouble getting any sort of information from our java team.

Are you sure this is a PKCS12 key file?
Ok, Try this,

Under your XP, double click this file, and you should get a certificate import wizard.
If you can successfully import the key, then open IE , go to "internet option" -> "content" -> "certificate"
find the certificate you just imported. (hopefully, it's in your personal store)

then export the without private key. to DER format. Save it to a file called 'xxxx.cer'

Then try modify your code to
X509Certificate2 myCertificate = new X509Certificate2(@"xxxx.cer");

Good Luck
