View Full Version : does cross platform ccrypt work in Windows vista or 7?

I'm using it in Linux and will need to send encrypted files to Windows users, so I wondered if ccrypt-1.9 works in Windows vista and 7. Can people let me know? Also, what are encrypted files called? For example in Linux it would be, filename.mp3.cpt for mp3 files.

ccrypt-1.9 is from http://www.mathstat.dal.ca/~selinger/ccrypt/ 650Kb. There is a version for Windows 95-XP. You also need ccrypt_gui_integration.zip 20Kb from http://ccrypt.sourceforge.net/VF/README.html which allows you to encrypt/decrypt files/folders by right-clicking on them in Linux KDE, Gnome, and Windows 98+. I think that in Windows you double click 'ccrypt-Win32-install.bat' to install it.
