You didn't used my application, and you ask people to not to use it !
With Xaes you have 2 modes, you can use Keychain to store key OR you can use xaes in standalone mode where you don't use keychain to store your pass, you just type your pass in a window.
You can download all the stuffs (application, framework, preferences pane , service, automator) OR only the application without preferences pane used to store in keychain, service, framework and automator.

READ: The key is stored in your KEY RING.

Do not use this product, what good is an encrypted file when the key to it is sitting practically right next to it.

NEVER use an encryption program that lets your key touch non-volatile memory. The furthest your key should get on the computer is ram, and then be immediately wiped.

Find your own way to story your keys, but do not SAVE them!
