    Question password protect my vb6 code

    Hi there,
    I have returned after a long time hope every thing on devX is going on fantastic as it was earlier.
    I have a query if any body could solve it i wud b grateful, u can even mail me personnally on 'wadheramanish@yahoo.com'.

    How can i password protect my code in vb6 without using visual source safe?
    What i want is whenever i open my vb code, vb should prompt me for a password and then only show me the code.

    Thanks

    Hi,
    Why don't you just set permissions on your project files in the filesystem to only allow read/write access to yourself? VB won't prompt you for a password, but if someone else tries to access your files, they won't have permission. Does this help?
