I am trying to call the below
i_bSSHSuccess = key.FromPuttyPrivateKey(keystr)
it fails with message fromPuttyPrivateKey: Invalid Putty Private Key --fromPuttyPrivateKey Failed.
You version is a bit behind, does the problem persist with 126.96.36.199?
If so, please post the full contents of the LastErrorText property immediately after the failing call in <pre></pre> tags.
Is the full error similar to the following?
ChilkatLog: FromPuttyPrivateKey: DllDate: Jun 13 2016 ChilkatVersion: 188.8.131.52 UnlockPrefix: <redacted> Architecture: Little Endian; 32-bit Language: ActiveX VerboseLogging: 0 fromPuttyPrivateKey: Expecting PuTTY-User-Key-File-2 --fromPuttyPrivateKey Failed. --FromPuttyPrivateKey --ChilkatLog
We are also now having this error with the latest 184.108.40.206. It did not occur with the previous version we were using, which was 220.127.116.11.
Thanks. Please post a sample of a private key that is getting passed that reproduces the error.

I gave it a test, and everything worked for me. Double check the actual string your passing to FromPuttyPrivateKey. I suspect you're passing invalid data.. (in other words, the string you're actually passing is not what you think you're passing)..
Did the FromPuttyPrivateKey method get changed at some point?
Because I see that the current documentation does explicitly state that the argument to FromPuttyPrivateKey should be the file contents, not the file name. And our code does appear to be passing in a file name.
I would agree this is incorrect according to current documentation (I haven't tried changing it yet), but am just very confused how our application IS working with the 18.104.22.168 version of the DLL!
I tested your PPK and found everything to be working.
