Visual FoxPro Version 5 - Encode / Decode
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.

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
And of course, if you are only encrypting fields you can always "roll =
own" - high powered encryption schemes are severely crippled when you =
short data strings, so your algorithm will be just as "secure".
Note: Make sure you are using SP 3 with VFP 5.0
