Script Encoder

I have some vbscripts that I would like to encode so users cannot see the text within the script (they have access to the files).

I thought I was supposed to use the script encoder from:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=e7877f67-c447-4873-b1b0-21f0626a6329&DisplayLang=en

but it doesn't seem to be working.

I get an error that says:
c:\data\scripts\sce10en.exe is not a valid Win32 application.

c:\data\scrtips is the location where I have sce10en.exe.

I have never used this before.  I tried it from the command line and I get the same pop-up error.  I am using Windows XP SP2.  (yes SP2).  As I said, I have never used this before so I don't know if it is SP2 related.

Am I doing something wrong?  Is there another encoder (free) that I can use?

Thanks!

sce10en.exe is the installer. The actual EXE is called SCRENC.EXE

If you are having trouble running the installer make sure that...
1) You have the correct permissions to install (admin)
2) That you got a god copy downloaded. Try deleting the sce10en.exe file and download a new copy. The file size after download should be 127 KB (130,312 bytes, size on disk will vary depending on blocking size of the disk.


The actual program is a windows console (dos like) application so run it from command prompt the first time to make sure you can see any errors that might be displayed but get lost when windows closed the command prompt after application termination.

I downloaded it and it installed just fine for me.

Hope this helps some.

Well that was pretty silly.  Original download was bad.  Thanks for the advice.
