    When a PC executes GenerateIV or GenerateKey, is the key and IV automatically
    stored somewhere on the PC or is one out of luck if they don't manually store
    the key and IV in order to decrypt any document that was encrypted using the
    key and IV?

  2. Hello Greg,

    you have to store the IV and Key yourself, e.g. you can prepend the IV to
    the data you are encrypting (as it is no secret).

    i have a sample up on my blog - check it out.
