Hi Experts

I'm planing to give an XML archive to be saved at the application folder where the .EXE will remain

This XML contains the key of perpetual application's use, with the name and other informations about the user. If something is changed in this XML file the license no longer works out.

Is it possible to "encryptate" this file to be opened in a manner it could be "desincryptated" and read when the user enter the application to check license?

If this is not a good way in doing that could you suggest another?

Thanks in advance!
