Our company is upgrading from Guardian Edge 9.5.3 SP3 to SEE 8.2. When Guardian Edge was installed, there was a registry entry that gave a encryption status of the machine. Located at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Encryption Anywhere\Hard Disk\EAFS\Disk0, it would give one of four statuses: StatusEncrypted, StatusDecrypted, EncryptionInProgress, DecryptionInProgress. With SEE 8.2, there doesn't seem to be an equivalent. Is there a key I'm missing somewhere that gives this information?
Same question. Pointsec let us see the status in the registry. I can't seem to find similar information from SEE.
@ Skersey -
all the registry keys still exist in 8.2 and they still get populated under the _LOCAL_MACHINE\\SOFTWARE\\Encryption Anywhere\\Hard Disk\EAFS even with 8.2.
You might have misread the underlying cause and attributed it to the software upgrade. If the permissions are not correctly set for Windows 7, another process cannot see these registry keys.
Giving permissions on nested registry keys is rather painful in Windows 7 than it is on windows XP (you need to take ownership of registry key and propagate it before setting permissions etc)
Here are the approximate steps needed to change registry permissions on Windows 7 (you should use this with a grain of salt). This is not an official method but will work.
