When I call CryptImportKey() to import a public key which is exported  from another key store, it gives error NTE_BAD_VER. Any idea what went wrong ?

At first glance, I'd tend to say that the CSP's versions don't match. As with http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa380207.aspx ("CryptImportKey"):

NTE_BAD_VER
The version number of the key BLOB does not match the CSP version. This usually indicates that the CSP needs to be upgraded.

Check the version of the CSPs involved and update accordingly...

sorry jkr, just discovered that it's because I am managing wrongly with the pointer to the keyblob, that's caused this error.

Thanks a lot anyway
