Script Protection Question

7 posts in this topic

First off, greetings. :)

I've been toying with AutoIt for a couple months now and greatly enhancing my productivity through the various scripts out there. Inevitably, the time has come for me to write something of my own creation so I wanted to get some help from the community of experienced programmers here. My own programming experience is somewhat limited, though I tend to pick up environments fairly quickly by going through code examples.

My first question is usually the last stage of a project but I wanted to get it out of the way. What methods are there to protect a script/program from being reverse-engineered by other AutoIt users? XProTec caught my eye so far but it's a little too feature-rich for my purposes (ie. trials, registration, etc). All I'm looking for is a way to lock out users from viewing and/or digging into the script in order to protect my work.

I know I'll have other questions soon, but any feedback on this one would be appreciated in the mean time.

Doesn't the exe2Au program convert compiled exe's back into au3 scripts?

And thanks I'll take a look at Obfuscater asap. :)

Have a good look at the power of __StringEncrypt as a means of securing information that you might write to an INI file or a Registry Key you may create. Good Luck Ant..
