Are there any know issue with decrypting files using GnuPG that were encrypted using SBB 5.0.

I am using GnuPG 1.4.7 to decrypt.
The SBB encrypt code has -
UseNewFeatures set to FALSE and
UseOldPackets set to TRUE.

The error I am getting is -
gpg: no valid OpenPGP data found
gpg: decrypt_message failed:eof

There are no issues at all, neither known or unknown. The users use this combination all the time.
Try to encrypt and decrypt the data using SecureBlackbox sample applications to check that the data is valid.

Sincerely yours

I have had success decrypting with GPG when adding the following lines of code:
mPgpWriter.Armor = true;
mPgpWriter.ArmorHeaders.Add("Version: EldoS OpenPGPBlackbox");
mPgpWriter.ArmorBoundary = "PGP MESSAGE";

I think that the ArmorBoundary = "PGP MESSAGE" is the particularly important piece here. GPG looks for that.

Good luck
