If you have passwords or something sensative in there then use the _StringEncrypt().

Check out this thread.

What ever you do ... the password will be in readable format as soon as you have to do a RunAsSet()... Edited by JdeB

Yes, but you will still need to use the _StringEncrypt to decrypt it in the script. You can declare a variable for it and place the variable as your password.


EndFuncAutoIt is the shiznit. I love it.

@Chiner : or you can pray that Smoke will release EncodeIt again.

IMO, the most incredible tool on this forum.

Could you explain to me how this makes it safer than just having the password in the script?

When you need to use the decripted password for a function as RunAsSet() i cannot see how it can be made truely save...

open for ideas tho ....

I guess nothing is truely safe. :whistle: However why do you have to use the plain text password for the RunAsSet(). I don't remember having to do that. Are you not able to use the Encrypted password with the RunAsSet?

Lost me on that question...

You need to specify the true Username and Password on the RunAsSet() and I don't see how it can be any different.

My only point was that I do not see the difference in the way the password is store when you need to have to translate it back at the time the RunAsSet() is performed and I haven't come up with a way that even when the Script is decompiled, the RunAsSet specified administrator password isn't revealed.
