Reseting master password with 2D barcode

I created master password recovery 2D barcode for F-Secure KEY. However, I only have it as a printed hardcopy. I have scanned it with a flat scanner as a jpeg image, but when I try to import it to the KEY windows desktop app nothing happens. No error or anything.

 

Any suggestions on how to proceed? Does the image of the 2D barcode have to be in same scale/size as the original image?

    Hi Petri,

     

    Could you try to save the image as .png file and retry to upload it?

    With 2D barcode I meant QR code.

    Thanx. That worked. Would be nice if the software would accept png-images only and give out an error message for others.
