U4-6535 - Exception error with static machine keys in version v7.2.4

Created by ContentActive 20 Apr 2015, 22:21:03 Updated by Shannon Deminick 26 Jun 2017, 07:11:21

Receive an exception error when static machine keys are defined. Under "Macchine Key", using the "Generate Keys" option in IIS v7.5 receives the error message "Decryption key specified has invalid hex characters." when trying to log into backoffice.

To clear the error, set it back to "Automatically generate at runtime"
