'Decrypt failed! (No secret key) Code = 17' Error PLEASE HELP
I've sent a message to two different people multiple times now and every time they try to decrypt it they get this error.
'Decrypt failed! (No secret key)
Code = 17'
I did this this for months with no problems. I took a break for a while and encrypted my message the same way I always have and this started happening. 1- Copy and paste user's public key to note pad and save 2- Import user's key to PGP 3- Write message in a new notepad that I wish to encrypt 4- In the task bar find PGP, right click it, click 'current window', and 'encrypt' 5- Choose the corresponding user's key I wish to send the message to and ecrypt it 6- Copy and paste this encryption in the medium I send it to them though and send it
Both of the people I send it to know what they are doing and both get the same error. The only thing I could think of that might have changed is I messed around with my PGP after I stopped using it and I needed my passphrase, but I'd forgot it because I never had to use it. I thought maybe that had something to do with "no secret key." I created a new master key with a new passphrase and they both got the same error again! So I started completely over. I uninstalled PGP and erased all my keyrings. I even removed my key from the database online and made a new key from scratch. Same error!!!!!!
