I'm using PowerBuilder 12.6. This problem just started happening today. I've not encountered it before (actually EVER).

When I click on my database from the Database Painter then right click on the one to which I want to connect and choose properties. I can enter my credentials, then click on Apply, then go to the Preview tab and test my connection and it says that I connected.

Then I click on OK and go back to database profiles and when I try to connect from there it won't let me. It says 'Login failed for RiBrooks'.

But when I run the application it logs in when I give it the credentials. So it seems that the Database Profiles screen is the only one that won't let me connect.


Has anyone ever seen anything like this?

Thanks in advance

I'm sorry, I just got the answer. I noticed the database painter told me that the cryptography module failed to load correctly and I had to restart Powerbuild. It's workng now

Don't you love it when a reboot actually solves the problem?  :)   

I know I do!
