I have a new 7.2.1 DNN installation.

I created a new Secure Folder and uploaded a file using the file manager.

If I right click on file after upload >> select "Get Url"

and I get a message that states "An error occurred while getting the url".

I upgraded to 7.2.2 and still have the issue.

Not really certain where to go from here and would appreciate any help. I tried the same process with a folder that wasn't secure and it worked fine.

The exception in the event log states.

DotNetNuke.Services.FileSystem.FolderProviderException: The underlying system threw an exception. ---> System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

check your web.config, I think the CoreCryptographyProvider is missing:

 <section name="cryptography" requirePermission="false" type="DotNetNuke.Framework.Providers.ProviderConfigurationHandler, DotNetNuke" />

<cryptography defaultProvider="CoreCryptographyProvider">
<clear />
<add name="CoreCryptographyProvider" type="DotNetNuke.Services.Cryptography.CoreCryptographyProvider, DotNetNuke" providerPath="~\Providers\CryptographyProviders\CoreCryptographyProvider\" />
