Is there an effort to include a function or snipper that can protect the executables or the database like MS Access? If I shall deploy the app is to limit the installation process or when installed limited to specific PCs.

Hope I get feedback on this.

Thanks,

One technique to protect executables is named "Hardware Dongle" where the usability of the .exe is strictly bound to a plugged USB hardware dongle into a USB port of the PC = unplugged USB dongle means, you can't even start the executable at all. Google the web, there are numerous solutions, not only hardware-based, but as well online key based services. The ACCESS database is usally protected by password or if you have the ENTERPRISE version of PHPRunner in hands, you can opt to use the built-in database encryption feature to somehow protect the database content against easy misuse.

That's a great idea. I will search for it. Many thanks.
