newdatabase.kdbx is corrupted, failed to load the file

Post by c676228 » Mon Apr 06, 2015 5:53 am

Hi,

I made the some updates in KeePassTestSuite. When I tried to run the test suite. I got the popup states that the newdatabse.kdbx file is corrupted. I uninstalled renorex and re-installed ranorex again. Still got the same error message.

Anybody got the same experience?

Thanks,
Betty

The .kdbx file is a KeePass data file. It has nothing to do with Ranorex.

Please uninstall and re-install KeePass.

Sorry, I deleted KeePass test suite folder under Documents\Ranorex\RanorexStudio Projects\Samples and tried to use repair of Ranorex-5.3.1.exe to reinstall samples. It doesn't work.

do I have to download kee pass specifically from keepass.com?

You may need to re-initialize the KeePass sample.

From the Ranores Start page, select the "Samples" dropdown, and select "Desktop". This should re-initialize the KeePass sample, which includes the data file.

Hi krstcs,

I followed your steps and it works. :D
Thanks for your great help! I don't know what caused the corruption of the file.
