RDCMan: There were problems decrypting some credentials

I have recently upgraded Remote Desktop Connection Manager (RDCMan) 2.2 to version 2.7. With the problem described and fixed here I got this popup window:

There_were_problems_decrypting_some_passwords1
To fix this issue, we should remove the <password> </password> pair from the .rdg file.


1) Make a backup of the file, actually you should make a copy before open the .rdg file with version 2.7.
2) Open the .rdg file with Notepad++. Press ctrl+h to open the “Replace” popup window.

  • Find what:<password>.*</password>
  • Replace with: null
  • Search mode: Regular expression
There_were_problems_decrypting_some_passwords

3) Click “Replace All” button and save the file.
4) Open it with RDCMan 2.7. You should have no popup window anymore. Enjoy!
However, you will have to re-enter your password for these hosts.

Be sociable 🙂 Share!
