Hi, i am using cryptoapi to encrypt my files. The files are decrypted
if i decrypt them on the same system with same user, but if i try to
decrypt them with different user or on different system, decryption
fails. The function i am using to encrypt files are:-
       CryptGetUserKey( );
       CryptGetUserKey( );
The fuction failing on decryption is

Show your code, particularly key generation and key exchange. The use of
CryptGetUserKey is suspicious - the keys it generates are different for
every user on every machine.
With best wishes,

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine. However, this is not
necessarily a good idea. It is hard to be sure where they are going to
land, and it could be dangerous sitting under them as they fly
overhead. -- RFC 1925
