If it ask for a password is easy to crack, but if it says something like:" This project cannot be show".... forget it.

Hi normbody,

The sample code in this article can help you determine if the project is simply locked for viewing or if something else happened:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/odeopg/html/deovrlockingyoursolutionsvbaproject.asp

you need to provide the correct password for viewing it.

You can make the password prompt appear, by opening the template in Word, via File/Open (set Files of type to Document Templates, insteadof having it loaded through Tools/Add-Ins & Templates.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

As i said, if the project is locked for view i don't know. If only ask for password it can be done.

Richie,

With the method I described, and with the feedback from normbody:

normbody is asked to provide a password now.

So, if we have a window to enter password, we need a little tool called softice (Hope still on the net).
If you haven't. Send me the file (doc or xls project, is the same protection) and i will try.

So, you will use softice but accept answer by calacuccia?
Calacuccia, nothing against you!
Hope you know how to get it or at least, which function and register to trap and read.
Cheers

Richie, I've setup an other question for you. Please give me a comment there, and I'll give your points too.

By studying the macros, I realised that it will not help me to get access to them.

ThAnks, normbody.

I suppose you graded my comment because I helped you to get a password prompt, as a first step towards the solution of this problem.
