Encrypton Algorithm used by Macro Scheduler for Crypt

Post by gtdalsanto » Sat Dec 03, 2011 9:37 pm

I was wondering what Encryption Algorithm is being used by the Macro Scheduler Crypt command. I have a need to encrypt information and save in a sql server table from a .net web based application. Then I will need macro scheduler to read from the sql server table and dcrypt the information using the same encryption algorithm.

Or does anyone know of a free redistributable library dll that can be used in a .net c# application that can be also loaded by Macro Scheduler libload to accomplish the same thing.

Thanks.

You could use an ActiveX encryption component. That would work from C# and also VBScript inside a Macro Scheduler macro. E.g. this one:

This library is not free.
Is there any other library or .NET class that can do the same as Crypt ?

I need to access .ini file with encrypted data in mjtnet and .NET.

Thanks,
Pedro

Macro Scheduler 14 has an AES encryption function. AES is commonly used to encrypt data in SQL tables.

I am still using version 10 and the Crypt function.
Could say what algorithm it uses ? So I can lookup for .NET libs.
Thanks,
Pedro

It's proprietary.

AESEncrypt>source,SHA256Password,ENCRYPT|DECRYPT,target

Is there a .NET class that can replicate this function ?
I need to be able to edit the encrypted values in my .NET code.

AES is very popular, so I should think so, yes:
