CryptUnprotectData Error

This post was originally published on this site

I am attempting to package an application that appears to encrypt a portion of its data during install using the Windows functions CryptProtectData CryptUnprotectData during install.


Packaging appears successfull and I can run the package on the same machine, but once I run the package on a second machine it throws the following error:


Error occured: -2146233088 An unknown error occured in the licensing module.  CryptUnprotectData returned false with the following win32Error Error -2146893813: Key not valid for use in specified state.



Anyone dealt with this issue before?



migrating KVM LVM images to vmware

This post was originally published on this site

I am using KVM on Ubuntu Server 10.04. and Virtual Machines are running on it in LVM.
I have to migrate some of them to Vmware server.How can I achieve this.
I searched and came across some links but they all talked converting vmdk images to qcow or so.
In this case I have OS in LVM.

but any of the above did not helped me.

Can any one suggest me what do I need to do to achieve the same?
