Date/Time Password Script

BigBobBK asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I need to password protect a script that stops a service (EDCSVR)on a computer.  Don't need a user name just password.  So when execcuted it should pop up input box where they can enter the password.  If correct it should pop up another box with a button to disable the service.

The password should be bassed on month, day, year, hour.  Maybe add all 4 variables then multiply by 6 and finally divide by 8.

Following is what I tried by when i enter the password in the box it does not worik.

strPasswd = ((Month(date)+Day(date)+Year(date))*6)/8
Msgbox strPasswd
password = InputBox("Enter your password:")
IF password = strPasswd THEN
Msgbox "CORRECT"

Any help would be appreciated.
