Be able to descrypt a file via RPA in 1 script and decrpyt it in another script.

Decrypt a file via RPA does not work unless you encrypt the file within the same script , which is pointless.
The problem is that you can't store the Cipher in a file with RPA and because you can't generate the same EAS Encryption Cipher more than once, because the mandatory Initialization vector ensures that if you try and recreate the Cipher with the same Key and Initialization Vector it generates a unique Cipher. The result is that if you try an decrypt a file in a different script from the encryption it doesn't work. I have attached screen shots and code. I explored using the Create RSA Cipher a, but this function just seems to encrypt an RSA key and it cannot be used to Encrypt a file.

The only way I could get the Encryption and Decryption to work was to have both functions in the same script, which seems pointless

    Hi thanks for the links but this script does not work as is, so I can't test it. Do you have a working example?[cid:61691fae-1f11-4695-8114-b81b6bb57c16]
