Hi,

How do I modify the code to only decrypt \Data\LinkFiles\LinkFinal.xml instead of all xml files in the folder?

For Each File In Directory.GetFiles(Application.StartupPath & "\Data\LinkFiles")

            Try
                fslinkBEL = New System.IO.FileStream(File, IO.FileMode.Open)
                dtsetlinkBEL = New DataSet
                dtsetlinkBEL.ReadXml(fslinkBEL)
                fslinkBEL.Close()
                Dim sec As New Security
                For t As Integer = 0 To dtsetlinkBEL.Tables.Count - 1
                    For i As Integer = 0 To dtsetlinkBEL.Tables(t).Rows.Count - 1
                        For j As Integer = 0 To dtsetlinkBEL.Tables(t).Columns.Count - 1
                            If Not IsDBNull(dtsetlinkBEL.Tables(t).Rows(i).Item(j)) Then
                                'dtsetlinkBEL.Tables(t).Rows(i).Item(j) = sec.psEncrypt(dtsetlinkBEL.Tables(t).Rows(i).Item(j))
                                dtsetlinkBEL.Tables(t).Rows(i).Item(j) = sec.psDecrypt(dtsetlinkBEL.Tables(t).Rows(i).Item(j))
                            End If
                        Next
                    Next
                    dtsetlinkBEL.WriteXml(File)
                Next
            Catch
                MsgBox(Err.Description & "FileName  " & File)
            End Try
        Next
        MsgBox("All Files Decrypted")

You can remove the loop code (lines 1,2 and 23) and insert this line at line 1:
Dim File As String = Application.StartupPath & "Data\LinkFiles\LinkFinal.xml"

Open in new window

The try/catch block code remains the same. I just initialize File variable with your requested value.

Hi,

Thanks for the code, how do you check to see if the file is encrypted before you attempt to decrypt it?

Regarding post question, the short answer is : NO.
If a code can determine this, it could mean that the encryption algorithm was broken. The goal of the encryption is to produce a file that looks like a random chunk of data.
Having said that you could add an extra node element to your xml, this element should store a value that your program reads and determine whether the file contains encrypted/decrypted info.
