HTA application issue - ecryption

I am building hta application with VBScript. In my application I will connect to Active Directory and thus I need AD connection string and username and password retrieved from ini file.

Here is the problem - connection string, username and password will be encrypted using .NET Component I've created. They will be decrypted in code using thr same component. The problem is that some of the machines this srypt will be run on do not have .NET Framework installed and so my component will generate an error. Is there any other way to encrypt and then decrypt sensitive data without either compromising security or installing .NET Framework?

What can I use to create the component so that it would not depend on any other dependency?

Sounds like what you want is IPSEC

That way, the client and server use technology already installed to manage secure communications.

rejoinder, thank you for the fast reply, but could you please give me some code sample? This is all new to me so it'd take me a few days to study the article and I need a solution fast.
Thanks!

Ah, there would be no code.  The setup is taken care of by group policy.  This would take time to understand and impliment so seeing as this is time sensative, it might not be the solution for you.

How about something like this...

Thank you for your help. It turns out encryption won't be necessary
