    Visual FoxPro Version 5 - Encode / Decode



    Hello,

    I am new to VFP and trying to find a simple, inexpensive and foolproof way
    to protect a VFP Database and application programs on CDs. In other words
    ensure, that only authorised users will be able to use the CD.

    My understanding is, that VFP does not have native encoding/decoding.

    Any suggestions?


    Thank you,
    Keith

    Keith,
    One freeware solution to encryption is the CryptPak by Milan Kosina
    (http://milan.jikos.cz/). Another is CIPHER50.FLL based on work by Tom
    Rettig and available at the UT (http://www.universalthread.com/ ) in the
    Download area.

    And of course, if you are only encrypting fields you can always "roll =
    your
    own" - high powered encryption schemes are severely crippled when you =
    use
    short data strings, so your algorithm will be just as "secure".

    Note: Make sure you are using SP 3 with VFP 5.0
