"Error generating an asymmetric key. Key not valid for use in specified state."

Hi,

Getting error "Error generating an asymmetric key. Key not valid for use in specified state." after upgrading to September 2019 version of Enterprise Data Gateway. It was working perfectly fine before with the June version so the suggestion that somethign with the firewall is blockig traffic should not be the case. Any other ideas?

Thanks

Dennis

@Ice 

For "Key not valid for use in specified state" errors try moving the folder RSA from C:\Users\<User>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Crypto\RSA to say C:\RSA (just in case there should be a need to restore it) then try installing again. This folder appears to act as a cache and should be rebuilt automatically as required.
