DONE: Encrypt or lock an Autohot key script
« on: July 19, 2006, 10:00:33 AM »
I have an Autohotkey script which I keep on a flash drive.  The script has my secret password. ( send secret password ) When I activate the Autohotkey from the flash drive it resides in my tray. It would then be possible for a malefactor to open ( edit  ) the hotkey and read the secret password.  Is there a way to have the keystrokes read the hotkey directly from the flash drive ( best solution ) or can the hotkey be locked from edit or encrypted so it can not be read.  I tried Axcrypt but when the autohot key goes to the tray it is then in plain text.

Thanks

Lew

Actually, any ahk script is only a pain text file. So, encrypting it would make it not run.
BUT, every ahk instalation comes with a compiler.
You can compile your script (with a password so that it can't be de-compiled) and use it as a .exe in your flash drive. Another advantage of this method is that it'll even work on computers that don't have ahk installed.
