Okay, so I fell asleep and didn't get anything done until 5 in the morning or so
Encryption and hashing is in place, and I have file loading and saving working. Do you want separate passwords for read-only and read/write, or would a "this data is read-only" flag be enough? Do you want read-only to disallow copy/paste operations?
Hmm, primary i wanted to start a lill EXE, enter a password and want to see the secret text.
So two EXEs would be fine <?hmm?
One EXE for to make as many SFX-EXEs wich will only show me an r/o text each. (is this clear what i say or not?)
Again, i want only to hide e.g. my licencs keys.
Encryption tools to encrypt and de-crypt are enought around, isn't it?
> Do you want read-only to disallow copy/paste operations?
No , copy would be good,,, to copy and paste the licences key into the apps dialog boxes
The GUI is the annoying thing to write, I'm doing it at API level to avoid size bloat... this has the downside that it's boring and tedious to write it, though. The application will have it's own edit control, so decrypted text never goes to disk.
Current exe size is ~70kb uncompressed, and it will stay below 100kb when finished. If that's too large, I can rewrite some stuff to get it smaller.
I think 100kB would be tiny enought, but as tiny as could be would be much more fine.
Unfortunately, I don't know if I'll have more time to work on this before the new year - I'm celebrating Christmas at my dads place and staying there for a while. ...
No matter of the time, take yours!
Thank you for your work.
And... maybe you have a beta for testing and see how we understand us.
(i have testing machines, and i could make a few screenshots of your tool)
