I am having issues downloading and decrypting data files created using the /encrypt = true("test") attribute. Interestingly, the manual states "Encrypted data files are saved with the "inq" extension" but my files are coming down with an "iqdatc" extension.

Here's a log snippet:

2016-04-08T13:27:22.381   InquisitLab   4.0.9.0   2658   System Platform='Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64'   MemAvail=27062380   MemTotal=33497548   CPUSpeed=3392   TimerResolution=0.0003018450581021552   IPAddress=xx   MacAddress=xx

I am also uploading the script.

You are correct: The "Gathering Data Over the Web" topic mistakenly refers to encrypted data files having and *.inq extension and plain-text files having a *.dat extension. Those used to be the extensions up to and including Inquisit version 3.

Under Inquisit 4 and above the respective file extensions are *.iqdatc and *.iqdat, respectively. (The language reference for the /encrypt attribute has this correct: "Encrypted files are saved with the "*.iqdatc" file extension, and plain text files are saved with the ".iqdat" file extension.")

As for the decryption failure: This is definitely a nasty bug. Thank you for pointing it out.
