IV. Troubleshooting "Key not valid for use in specified state" in server trace log

  1. In Windows Explorer, navigate to one of the following folders, depending on your operating system:
  • Windows XP/2003: C:\Documents and Settings\Application Data\Microsoft
  • Windows Vista/2008 or later: C:\Users\[Windows User Account Name]\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft

Hidden folders

These paths include hidden folders. To make hidden folders visible, click Start → Control Panel → Folder Options → View, select Show hidden files, folders, and drives and then click OK.

    1. In the path above, find and rename the Crypto folder to "Crypto old." If you cannot rename the folder, right-click it, select Copy from the context menu, right-click in the present folder and then select Paste from the context menu (this copy will serve as a backup).
       
    2. After making a backup, delete the original Crypto folder.
       
    3. Restart the ERA Server service.

  1. The Crypto folder will be re-created automatically, and the connection to the repository should now be functional. Test your connection to the ERA repository as described in Part I.
