TatukGis Viewer can't open sqlite protected layer
MarG asked on September 09, 2019, keyword: Viewer / Editor
Using this document :
I tried to connect to a password protected layer in sqlite DB via TatukGis Viewer.
But the Viewer shows error : "file is not a database". How can I open that in Viewer?
Also, I noticed " If a Sqlite client supports encryption, a layer will pass a key from Password to a database in 'PRAGMA key' format command. " How can I set this 'PRAGMA key' ?
My ttkls file format is here :

To use the encryption, you need a special Sqlite library distribution with implemented one of these extensions: SEE, SQLCipher, SQLiteCrypt, etc. The SEE and SQLiteCrypt require the purchase of a license. TatukGIS products use a normal distribution without the encryption extension.
Setting a password for a sqlite database connection in .ttkls file can be done using either Password
or PRAGMA key
