I get a "*Cannot open PGP keyring file. *File/folder open error. [1003]" error when trying to decrypt a file. What am I doing wrong?

This article applies to Robo-FTP v3.5.x and previous.

This error means that Robo-FTP cannot find the three files that constitute the Robo-FTP "keyring" These files are: pubring.gpg, secring.gpg, and trustdb.gpg.

Robo-FTP expects these files to be in the current working folder (e.g., C:\Program File\Robo-FTP). If you are getting this error check that these files (1) exist, (2) are valid, and (3) that you have not changed the Robo-FTP current working folder to a different location. (Note that you can specify the path to the keyring in the PGPDECRYPT command if you have the keyring in an alternate location.)
