I have my file woth encrypted format.i want to decrypt my file.i have tried like this but this is not working.

protected void Button2_Click1(object sender, EventArgs e)
           DecryptFile(@"d:\eula.3082.txt", @"d:\sql\eula.3082.txt", GenerateKey());

static void DecryptFile(string sInputFilename,
                    string sOutputFilename,
                    string sKey)
            DESCryptoServiceProvider DES = new DESCryptoServiceProvider();
            //A 64 bit key and IV is required for this provider.
            //Set secret key For DES algorithm.
            DES.Key = ASCIIEncoding.ASCII.GetBytes(sKey);
            //Set initialization vector.
            DES.IV = ASCIIEncoding.ASCII.GetBytes(sKey);

            //Create a file stream to read the encrypted file back.
            FileStream fsread = new FileStream(sInputFilename,
            //Create a DES decryptor from the DES instance.
            ICryptoTransform desdecrypt = DES.CreateDecryptor();
            //Create crypto stream set to read and do a 
            //DES decryption transform on incoming bytes.
            CryptoStream cryptostreamDecr = new CryptoStream(fsread,
            //Print the contents of the decrypted file.
            StreamWriter fsDecrypted = new StreamWriter(sOutputFilename);
            fsDecrypted.Write(new StreamReader(cryptostreamDecr).ReadToEnd());

In this line i am getting error: Bad data

fsDecrypted.Write(new StreamReader(cryptostreamDecr).ReadToEnd());

Make sure the key is the same for encryption and decryption.

I think your problem may be the key :


If you are generating a random key you will get an exception becuase a file needs to be decrtypted with the same key it was encrypted.
unless you are creating an application that is supposed to hack the key using a dictionary or brite force attack , but even though the algorithm isnt the strongest if they key is long that will take a while.

Also can we see the encrypt command , did you encrypt the file . Make sure you are using the exact same algorithm and encoding that encrypted it.

Heres a brilliant article to get you started on encryption and decryption.

Try this:
I tried even .exe files encrypt/decrypt works, .exe works after decrypted.

DES Crypto
