Error Attempted to read or write Protected memory (wodFtpDLX / wodFtpDLX.NET)

I'm experiencing an issue with wodFtpDLX and WODSSHKeyLib

xmlkey = New WODSSHKeyLib.Keys
Ftp1.LicenseKey = "XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX"

Ftp1.Blocking = True
Ftp1.Hostname = txtHostName.Text
Ftp1.Login = txtLogin.Text
Ftp1.Port = System.Convert.ToInt32(txtPort.Text)
If Me.txtKeyFile.Text.Length > 0 Then
Ftp1.Authentication = WeOnlyDo.Client.Authentications.PublicKey
xmlkey.Load(txtKeyFile.Text, "")
Dim a As String
a = xmlkey.ToXmlString(WODSSHKeyLib.SSHKeyTypes.RSAkey, True)
Ftp1.PrivateKey = a
Ftp1.Authentication = WeOnlyDo.Client.Authentications.Password
Ftp1.Password = txtPassword.Text
End If

The rsa key was generated on a linux platform using ssh-keygen -y rsa

The error coming back is "Error: Attempted to read or write protected memory at WODSSHKeyLib.KeyClass.ToXMLString(SSHKeyTypes KeyType,Boolean IncludePrivate)

We are using version 1.0.0 of WODSSHKeyLib

I have converted the generated rsa key via putty to a .ppk files and have successfully logged into the linux server using WINSCP. I think it might be the structure of the RSA key that is at fault, but not sure how to fix it.

Hi Cassy.

Any chance you can update your wodKeys, since latest version is, so it's possible you're using very old version of this product.

If that doesn't help, can you send us your key to techsupport - at - so we can try to duplicate this issue, and fix it if needed?

Hi Jasmine,

That did the trick.

Thanks for your help.
