Question

How Do I Password Protect My Setup?

Answer

InstallShield gives you the option to password protect your setup using the following steps:

1. Select your Release.
2. Click the Setup.exe tab.
3. In the Password Protect Launcher property, select Yes.
4. In the Launcher Password property, type in a valid password for verification.

InstallScript Project Type:
1. Select your Release.
2. Click the Setup.exe tab.
3. In the Media Password property, type in a valid password.
4. In the Show Password Dialog property, select Yes to set the SHOW_PASSWORD_DIALOG system variable to a non-zero value, which executes the password-checking code in the OnCheckMediaPassword event handler function?s default code.

If Show Password Dialog property is set to, "No", you will need to enter your own code in the script in order to request the password from the end user and check it by calling FeatureValidate.
