    Dear all,
    Does anyone know how to protect an exe file, so the file can only be accessed from a particular computer.
    Possible by applying protection by Computer ID, MAC Address, etc.

    The exe file should not be able to run from other companies, because we already purchased software from a programmer, unfortunately we lost contact with the programmer, so can not modify the software to add that protection

    Perhaps what is the appropriate software purchased for a case like this?

    Thank you very much

    Sure. On Windows just right click it and go to properties and then encrypt it. It's encrypted with the Windows password and won't work on other systems.

    It must be my lack of understanding yudigadget. Because Hungry Man easily understood.

    So encryption is done natively without a 3rd party program?

    Thanks for the pic. On my W7hpx64 that option is greyed out. I wonder why cause I am running as Admin.

    does anyone have experience about Enigma Protector or other exe protection, which one is good? because looks like i prefer to use protection like re-pack the exe with protection based by Computer ID, etc
