InvalidKeyException: IOException : algid parse error, not a sequence

I'm using some code grabbed off the Interwebs that should work, but I'm getting an exception... got the .der files from my boss, so I assume they're valid, but perhaps not. Spacing and returns are odd here but normal on my machine.

C:\Users\Trevor Basden\Desktop\ImportKey>java ImportKey AKMClientPrivKey.der AKM
ClientSignedCert.der password
Using keystore-file : C:\Users\Trevor Basden\Desktop\ImportKey\keyst2

Hi Trevor,

Welcome to Java Ranch! I see you're not getting any responses to this question in I/O and Streams, so I'm going to move it over to Security where it might get some better traction. Good luck!
