Got a new computer and was migrating my characters over to it. The Import/Export function in the MQ Launcher was spitting out the following errors on Import/Export:

Export: CryptAcquireContext failed error 80090016
Import: CryptAcquireContext returned -2146893802

I went through trying to figure out if it was UAC, some obscure setting, that my password is so strong you guys, updates, lack of DirectX, etc.
Turns out it's pretty easy to fix.

Show Hidden Files/Folders, go into C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Crypto, and double-click on the SystemKeys folder. Windows prompted me to give myself admin access to the contents and Import/Export worked afterwards!
Yay saving the time moving characters without manually entering all of their data into the UI. Figured I'd toss up a thread for posterity in case anybody else runs into this in the future.

I dont see any directory for crypto under Microsoft . I'm on win 10, any help
I can't get an answer from dog2 on discord if you are the same person, I'm going to assume so based on timing and issue.

if you are not the same person, please confirm so we can try and get you sorted out
