This seems to be a common behavior of yours. I’ve only checked a couple of legacy 1.7 versions of AxCrypt on a few different occations.

Yes, correct. We are stopped developing new features and fixing issues for the legacy version(AxCrypt 1.x). we will not be actively developing 1.x, nor will support be a priority. We are advising users to use AxCrypt 2.x latest.
