(desktop PC, Windows 10)
I wonder whether anyone could help, please
A few months ago, I wanted to change my desktop KeePass 2.54’s master-password. A nightmare that nearly locked me out of my own encrypted stuff.
For some unknown reason, the new master-password was invalid. Or so KeePass said. I nearly had a stroke.
Thank goodness I had kept an old copy of the database (with the old password) so I could access my encrypted stuff.
Yesterday, months later, I tried again (KeePass 2.55). Same scary problem.
I created a password (72 characters). I eliminated all apostrophes, commas, etc etc
The new password was on a (disposable) document (something I never do, but I wanted to make sure I wasn’t making any mistake)
I copied+pasted the new password onto KeePass’ password-replacement dialogue-box, etc etc.
I logged out of KeePass and then, to log in, I (again) copied+pasted the new password. KeePass told me the password was invalid. Which is impossible. I always copied+pasted the newly created password, throughout the whole procedure. From the very beginning.
After reinstalling KeePass, scanning (repeatedly) this PC for malware, etc, I asked a few friends for help. They couldn’t find anything wrong with what I was doing.
We even typed the new password, character-by-character, all of us checking and double checking to ensure we were doing the right things.
They told me to ditch KeePass, and use another program. The main reason why I use KeePass is that it’s NOT an online/cloud app. I hate cloud apps.
Anyway, before I’m forced to replace KeePass with something else, has anyone got any idea what the problem might be??
It’s the only program I've got problems with.
In advance, thank you very much for your kind help
