I have been using SFTP Blackbox 5.0.107, and recently my certificate has expired, and my supplier provided me a new key with passphase, which I am able to load into the Microsoft Windows Public Key Management, but I failed to load it into TElSSHKey using LoadPrivateKey. It's a RSA (2048 Bits).

Please advice, thanks.

You can't load the *certificate* using LoadPrivateKey. ElSSHKey class works with SSH keys, not with certificates and their private keys.
You can load the certificate to ElX509Certificate and then use ElSSHKey.Import() method to import that certificate.

Sincerely yours

I see... that clarifies... and it works, much thanks. I was wondering why I have to use a different method to load the certificate; and I have to amend the Sample SimpleSftpDemo to work for this certificate.
