Password protection to prevent opening script in Edit mode

Recommended Posts

Royzer

Hi. I am very new to AutoIt. I have password protected a script but I noticed that if I right click on the icon the menu gives me the Edit option, which would reveals the part of the script that contains the password to execute the script. Is there any way to password protect the ability to view/edit a script?

Thanks! :oops:

Compile the au3 to an exe? Pretty sure you are seeing "edit" because it's an au3 file and you have scite installed.

Thanks, Unbalanced. That makes sense. Anyone who doesn't have scite wouldn't have the edit option on their menu.

That should be: Everybody that doesn't have AutoIt3 installed will not be able to run it unless you compile it and distribute the exe.

None-the-less, do not embed cleartext passwords in a script. Even if compiled (wrapped into exe) the password can be retrieved.
