Hello,

I am trying to decrypt ZIP Files which have been encrypted using the PGP. I am usign the following command:

"echo" + "passphrase" + "| gpg.exe --passphrase-fd 0 -o \"" +  outputFileNameFullPath + "\" --decrypt \"" + encryptedFile.FullName + "\"";

It works fine for encrypted 'text' o r 'excel' files. But I cannot get it to work for Zip files.

Any help will be greatly appreciated

Thanks

Hi,

use gpg-zip!

http://www.gnupg.org/documentation/manuals/gnupg/gpg_002dzip.html

-- doesn't work on Windows, thus not included in the Windows version! Which is your platform?

This Member has asked two different hacking/cracking questions and then abandoned them.
This should be a 'Delete/No Refund'.

younghv,
I can't see any hacking/cracking stuff here.
The question doesn't give any reason to assume that the asker wouldn't have legal access to the appropriate key/passphrase.

I think that my answer # 24288008 is correct as well as conforming to EE rules and should be accepted.
