Why would you want to do that? Having an executable write to itself to keep track of database information is just silly. Further, you can't have an executable write to its own executable because it would have to be running and you can't modify executable files while they are running. This is a rule that should not be bypassed, not a limitation of autoit.

Hi,

there is a little chance. I guess you can use 4 Byte for a password, but how often do you change it? Why not saving it hard in the exe an if necessary rebuild it? Or use external savings like ini or something.

Another possibility is wrap your exe with another exe, this way it looks to the user as if it is only one file.

May have a look at LoginWrapper in my sig, you can easily change it to this.

So long,

Yahtzee The game "Yahtzee" (Kniffel, DiceLion)

LoginWrapper Secure scripts by adding a query (authentication)

_RunOnlyOnThis UDF Make sure that a script can only be executed on ... (Windows / HD / ...)

Internet-Café Server/Client Application Open CD, Start Browser, Lock remote client, etc.

MultipleFuncsWithOneHotkey Start different funcs by hitting one hotkey different times

A byte is equal to 8 bits. A text character is one byte, therefore what he means by a four byte password is that the password can be 4 characters long. I would recommend writing the password to a external .dat file, but encrypted so that nobody could understand what it was if they opened it. Even if you were to append the password to the end of the executable, you would probably still want to encrypt it. I would therefore recommend you use the _StringEncrypt() function.

You can write to an executing file. There have been some times that I have been able to do it but it is highly risky.

You can make it into a text file, then set the file attribute to "h" (Hidden)

If you don't like files you can alwas use Registry Keys, but most people don't like that. Also remember that no information that is stored/accessed with autoit is completly safe. (Edit: Including the source.)
