Hi,

I am trying to decrypt a password and I am getting the error.....

"Padding is invalid and cannot be removed"

Please understand, the code that is running works in the application it was built for. All you do is pass in the encrypted password and you should get the reverse engineered string back. To let you understand, I do not have the privilege to change the decryption code. All I have is the power to pass in an encrypted string.

If someone understands this error message this may lead me to what the problem is.

Cheers

Paul
