Error Codes


KeePass error codes and their meanings.

Error Code Name User? Description
0x00000000 Unknown No An unknown error occured. KeePass uses this error code internally and the user should never see this error.
0x00000001 Success Yes No error occured. Everything worked perfectly.
0x00000002 Invalid
Parameter
No A function within KeePass has received an invalid parameter. This should never happen.
0x00000003 Out of Memory Yes The operating system didn't grant KeePass enough memory. The current operation was cancelled. The database maybe is in a broken state and should not be saved.
0x00000004 Invalid Key Yes The user-provided composite key (password / key file) for the database was incorrect, or the database is corrupted. Make sure the password and/or key file is correct.

If you are absolutely sure that the password / key file is correct, then probably the file is corrupted (maybe you accidently removed the USB stick from the computer without unmounting it). In this case, try the Repair Database functionality of KeePass.
0x00000005 File Access Error:
Read File
Yes The operating system (Windows) didn't grant KeePass read access to the specified database file. Note that this doesn't mean that the database is corrupted or something like that; KeePass just cannot get read access to the file.

Make sure that you can read the file.
0x00000006 File Access Error:
Write File
Yes The operating system (Windows) didn't grant KeePass write access to the specified database file.

Try saving the database to a different location, where the administrators of your network have granted you write access to.
0x00000007 File Error: Read Yes An error occured while reading the database or key file. This can happen if you for example open a big database from USB stick and remove the stick while KeePass is reading the file.

Make sure KeePass can access the complete file and don't remove the device before KeePass has read it completely.
0x00000008 File Error: Write Yes An error occured while writing the database or key file. This can happen if you for example save a big database to USB stick and remove the stick while KeePass is writing the file.

Make sure there is enough free space left on the target device and don't remove the device before KeePass has written the file completely. Make sure you correctly unmount the device (USB stick).
0x00000009 Invalid Random Source No This is an internal cryptographic error. The random source, that is used to generate random numbers, is invalid. This means that it produces non-random values and therefore the security (secrecy) of your database cannot be guaranteed; therefore the operation was aborted.

This error should never occur. If you see this error code, please submit a bug report (see below).
0x0000000A Invalid File Structure Yes The structure of the current database file is invalid. This can either happen if the user-supplied composite key (password, key file) is invalid or if the file is corrupted.

If you are sure that the key is correct, try the Repair Database functionality.
0x0000000B Cryptographic Error No An internal cryptographic error occured. One of the cryptographic components cannot be initialized, tested and/or returned an error.
0x0000000C Invalid File Size Yes The file size isn't valid. This means that the file is corrupted.
0x0000000D Invalid File Signature Yes The file's signature is invalid. This means that the file is corrupted and/or not a file that KeePass can read.
0x0000000E Invalid File Header Yes The file's header is invalid. The file could be corrupted, could have been created by a newer KeePass version, or could not be a KeePass file at all.
0x0000000F File Access Error:
Read Key
Yes The operating system (Windows) didn't grant KeePass read access to the specified key file or it doesn't exist. Note that this doesn't mean that the key file is corrupted, KeePass just cannot get read access to the file.

Make sure the media that contains the key file is inserted and that KeePass has the right to access it (check file access rights, ensure that no other application is blocking the file, ...).

In case you're selecting the key file's drive (i.e. not specifying it manually), have a look for the "pwsafe.key" file. See the composite key documentation for more information about using key files.
0x00000010 Prov: Invalid Key Yes The key provider plugin did not supply a valid key.
0x00000011 File Error: Verify Yes The data that has been sent to the disk/drive does not match the data that is now stored on the disk/drive, i.e. the file was corrupted by something. See error 0x00000008.
0x00000012 KDBX File Yes The file you tried to open is in KDBX format. KDBX files are only supported by KeePass 2.x. Either use KeePass 2.x, or use the 'Export' feature of KeePass 2.x to migrate the file to a KeePass 1.x KDB file.
0x00000013 System Error Yes A user-level error occured and the system provided the detailed description shown in the error message box.
0x00000014 Database Empty Yes The database is empty. KeePass refuses to load/save empty databases.

User?

Yes: This error is not a bug. KeePass has failed to perform some operation and you can fix this "error" yourself. For example, when you entered an invalid key for your database, failing to open the database isn't a bug.

No: This error is a bug. You should never see this error. Please submit a Bug Report.
