Publisher's Description

Password-protect any Windows executable file:

EXE Password Protector is a utility that adds password protection to any executable file and prevents unauthorized launch. Whenever you try to open protected file you will be prompted to enter the valid password. Only person who knows the correct password can launch protected EXE file. Such protection is achieved by adding additional code to executable file. That’s why it doesn’t depend on any external software and works under all systems.

EXE Password Protector features and highlights:
  • Protect any Windows EXE file by setting the password (16/32/64-bit binary executable files are supported)
  • Set/remove password on-the-fly using user-friendly wizards
  • Protect file on local or network drives
  • Fail-safe protection is provided to make sure that you won't lock your operating system
  • Absolute integrity after you remove the password (file will be identical to the original one)
  • Protection is implemented directly on the file, without dubious background process protection
  • Password may contain up to 50 characters
  • No reboot is required after installation and setting/removing password-protection
  • Launch protected/unprotected file directly within EXE Password Protector for testing purposes
  • Create backup copy of the original EXE
  • Extensive description of every step you will have to go though guarantees you an easy start
  • Truly user-friendly interface
