Padding is Invalid and cannot be removed


Receiving a "Padding is Invalid and cannot be removed error" when adding a license in ProFile.

If the Entitlement Client is corrupt, it will cause ProFile to generate this error.

Go to the C:ProgramData - Note: the ProgramData folder is a hidden file.

  • Rename the EntitlementDataStore.ecml file to EntitlementDataStoreOld.ecml
