Could you please check the following for us? With the screenshot below of the key for your Self Destruct feature, have a look at the file C:\inetpub\Passwordstate\selfdestruct\web.config file and see if it matches?


If it does, can you also do the following for us:

  • Confirm if you are using any Load Balancers or Reverse Proxies?
  • If not, can you contact us via the following support page and provide us a copy of this web.config file to have a look at - https://www.clickstudios.com.au/support.aspx

Thanks - I've responded to your email, and hopefully we've provided you a fix.


It looks like we've included extra configuration items in this web.config file that are already present in the parent web.configs file, so we will look into this and fix it for the next release.

Sorry for the inconvenience.
