I am tring to decrypt a message that was encrypted with a symmetric algorithm.
I am using the CryptoStream class to write the decrypted message to a MemoryStream.

when I run cryptostream.FlushFinalBlock I am getting the errror:
Length of the data to decrypt is invalid

I just want to say that the code that make the encryption is the same as the one that make the decryption - just using the CerateDecryptor insteed of CreateEncryptor.

thanks in advance
