Hi

I want to make application which can protect files and folders with password.
Should like this:

1) First You choose file(or folder) that You want to protect and somehow set tha password

2) When someone want to access the file (or folder), dialog box or window appears and ask for password...

Any ideas?

I will be more setisfied if You post source code reather then links.

Thanks in advance
Marko

Marko,

As with your "Hide Files/Folders" question, http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Programming_Languages/Delphi/Q_21365420.html, I think we need more details and context.

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.

Marko,

That is a different question.  Stick to the details/facts with this question.  I'm concerned that you have two open questions with similar themes and a lack of objectives and requirements for your application.

Marko,

The way to make this question easier is to provide us the detailed answers to my questions as I have requested of you in more than one of my comments.

I have asked Community Support to monitor these two questions.

Marko,

<<I wrote detail on ... >>
Does that mean that these two questions are the same?

Note:
The nature of these two questions is such that the answers can be used to cause harm.  (operative word is "can")

We are not allowed to ask cracking/hacking questions.
We are not allowed to answer such questions.
We are obligated to report suspicious questions to Community Support.

=========================
Since there are software packages/products that do what you are asking, it seems like you are duplicating this complex function with no explanation why you need to do this.  You probably know that this is not a simple coding task and you must realize that Experts-Exchange.com is not a substitute for
* Rent-a-coder
* your own work
* contract programmers
* etc.

We are here to help you as long as we do so within the EE rules of conduct.
