RDM Free v2019.1.4.0 - Unable to open encrypted SQLite database

Hi,

I'm having a unique issue with RDM Free for MacOS.
Recently got a MacBook, and have been trying to get RDM to work on it. Everything works fine, except opening an encrypted SQLite database.
The database I have been trying to open on MacOS is encrypted with a password and it won't open in the MacOS client, saying that it's an invalid password. I tried pasting it as well to no avail.
The same database opens up fine on a Windows client.
Only when I remove the password can I open up the database on the MacOS client.

Any ideas?

Thanks and kind regards,
Mario

Hi Mario,

Sadly the SQLite is a database format thought of as a single-user local file format. A SQLite data source use an encryption that is unique to the platform (an SQLite encrypted on a Window computer won't work on a macOS one, and vice versa). There is no supported way to share encrypted data source between Windows and macOS.

If you want to share a local data source that supports encryption across different platform, I'd suggest using an XML data source.

Hi Xavier,

Thanks for the accurate response. I switched from SQLite to XML, exported all my entries and imported them to a new XML instance.
Everything works as expected.

Thank you and kind regards,
