After opening a database, the decrypted file is located at your temp directory (C:\Users\xxx\AppData\Local\Temp\WAV?????.tmp) until the program is terminated.

(I am not allowed to post links yet, replace hxxps with https please)

How to use:
1. Download msgstore.db.crypt5 from your Android phone (located at /sdcard/WhatsApp/Databases)
2. Open WhatsApp Viewer
3. File -> Open -> Select file
4. Enter account name. This must be the same Google account name used on your phone. If you have more than one account, try the first one. Make sure you enter the whole email address as account name. If you have trouble, sometimes leaving the account name empty is known to work.
5. Click on a chat to show the messages.

Currently only text and image messages are supported (no audio, gps).
You cannot see bigger images because only thumbnails are stored in the database.
You see cryptic phone numbers because account names or details are not stored in the database (no support for wa.db yet).

This release is not stable and known to crash sometimes. Sorry.

Thank you very much for the viewer, and please note the following:
The viewer worked for the files with .crypt5 But recent updates later than .105 of Whatsapp are creating another encrypted backup file with .crypt6, The above viewer could not decrypt it

Phone whatsapp.livetrack.mobi not decrypting crypt5 to crypt
Hi Experts,

Problem:
1. I was able to extract whatsapp msgstore.db.crypt earlier with WhatsApp extractor.
2. After upgrading to crypt5 format also, I was able to do it using whatsapp.livetrack.mobi.
3. But now I am not able to decrypt crypt5 to crypt using it.

What I'm doing:
1. Go to whatsapp.livetrack.mobi.
2. Select Decrypt WhatsApp Database.
3. Enter my Gmail address in lower case with correct spelling.
4. Browse msgstore.db.crypt5.
5. Hit on Process / Download Zip.

Error:
1. After 60-120 seconds, I get the following error -
2. Decryption failed / Incorrect Account?

Troubleshooting done:
1. Tried many times on same browser continuously, and also at different times.
2. Did the same on different browsers after multiple reboot.
3. Checked internet connection, tried on different internet connections and also different computers.
4. Checked spellings and files and formats and everything.

I'm a layman and do not have any programming knowledge and for me extracting msgstore.db.crypt5 file on my PC is important. Please help me with this, am getting pessimistic. Thanks for whoever is trying to help people here.

Error itself says incorrect account.. that means... the gmail account which is link to whatsapp is not correct.. You need to give gmail account of that handset from which you have copied whatsapp database .....

I converted about 10 crypt5 files till today with no problems at all using the same gmail acc.

I guess there was a change in the encryption using those user id confirmations either from whatsapp (could be update) or change in the online converter/encrypter/decrypter.

BTW. my whatsapp did update last night but HAS NOT went to crypt6 yet.
And it has restarted asking me to confirm my mobile number (account number)

Maybe they have changed the encryption type to crypt6 (with the new update) but didn't changed the name (extension) yet.
Is this posbile?
If so, we're f*****

I have also the new encryption 6! But only with the newest Beta Update of Whats App. When you installed this beta version you can go to /settings/chat-settings and then go to "last backup" choose it and it will backup an new msgstore.crypt6.

So waiting for a new generated key
