Product SafeGuard LAN Crypt Client for PC Client OS All supported operating systems Question How should encryption rules be defined for 16-bit programs ? Answer For the version below 126.96.36.199 if you use 16-bit programs that are to access encrypted files with file names longer than 8 characters or files in directories with names longer than 8 characters, you must use 8.3 notation to name the encryption rules. You should define these extra encryption rules separately, since otherwise 32-bit programs will not work any more.
Files which were accessed via its short path name (e.g. C:\DOKUME~1 instead of “C:\Documents and Settings”) were only considered by SafeGuard LAN Crypt if an additional rule on the short path name was defined.
For the version 188.8.131.52 and higher a rule has only to be defined on the long path name and the short path name is also considered. Hint: Use the dir /x command to display the correct 8.3 name of long file names.
