Base64DecodeToFile Error

0
I am importing data into a Mendix application.  The data consists of Base64 encoded images.  The images are stored in a FileDocument that is XML.  I have a small sample file with 2 images that I have loaded into my app.  When I use Base64DecodeToFile to store the image contents into a Mendix entity, I received the following error: com.mendix.core.CoreException: com.mendix.modules.microflowengine.MicroflowException: com.mendix.core.CoreRuntimeException: com.mendix.systemwideinterfaces.MendixRuntimeException: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Illegal base64 character a at BrothersCRM.ViewPicture (JavaAction : 'Base64 decode to file') Advanced stacktrace: at com.mendix.basis.component.InternalCore.execute(InternalCore.java:568) Caused by: com.mendix.modules.microflowengine.MicroflowException: com.mendix.core.CoreRuntimeException: com.mendix.systemwideinterfaces.MendixRuntimeException: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Illegal base64 character a at BrothersCRM.ViewPicture (JavaAction : 'Base64 decode to file') When I copy the base64 content and use one of these websites to convert it to an image, it works without an error:  https://codebeautify.org/base64-to-image-converter and https://onlinepngtools.com/convert-base64-to-png The sample file with the xml content can be downloaded here:  https://www.filehosting.org/file/details/825674/XMLPicturesSample.xml any ideas how I can get this working? ***EDIT*** I found this posting which solved my problem  https://forum.mendix.com/link/questions/4293

I think your Base64 is corrupted. When I download the image from your online decoder example, and re-encode it. It comes out slightly different. When I use this different version, the Base64DecodeToFile works.

Hope this helps
