Ciphering ended abruptly

I set up the ciphering of my moneydance data a month ago and since I had twice the same message when exiting the software : "Ciphering couldn't work because the module wasn't installed on your program".

Twice I set it up again, from the "File" menu, and it worked as before.

Has anyone met the same error ?

I'm on Mac OSX 10.6.6, Moneydance version is the last one 2010 R3 (751)

    That doesn't sound like a Moneydance error message. How did you set up ciphering exactly? Are you using a 3rd party encryption program?

    To set up file encryption on Moneydance you should open your data file in Moneydance and select File->Encryption.

    It's exactly what I did.

    No 3d party software used.

    When exactly do you see the error message? Do you get it when you try to save the file, when you set up encryption or when you try to open an encrypted file? Can you take a screenshot of the error message by pressing the print screen key on your keyboard and attach the screenshot to this discussion.

    As I wrote in the first message, I got twice the message exiting the program.

    Next time I'll have the problem I'll take a screenshot but it could be in 10 days or more, it's randomly.

    Am I the first to report such a bug ? Perhap's because not many are using encryption ...

    Yes you are the first to report this and we have not been able to reproduce the problem. Given that the message you described above is not one of the Moneydance error messages i am not yet certain this is a bug in Moneydance. Please do send the screenshot of the error message that will help us understand what is happening.

    It happened another time. And as you'll see in the screenshot it's a moneydance bug ....

    The next time you get this error, could you please open the Help->Console Window and copy and paste the information it contains below? Please also include the version of Java you are running (available in the same location). This will help us to diagnose this rather rare bug.
