Is there a installer out there, such as InstallShield, Wise or any other, that lets me perform the compression (any format) on an encrypted file, if I give it the passphrase that I used when encrypting the file?
Basically, I have a bunch of files that are already encrypted (and they need to be encrypted) that need to be compressed before deployment so the installer package is smaller, so maybe there is a ultility or installer that lets me compress a cab file or something if I provide the passphrase?
I read the other topic, but it didnt answer the question I needed.
Thanks for all the great people here trying to help.
perhaps I should go into more detail here...
my software has a viewer of office documents. Its built into Office. My software comes with really, nice Word Tempates which I want to protect from "copiers" so the legitimate people dont suffer, the software/viewer displays the thumbnails to the user, when the legitimate user tries to open a tempalte, my running "service" decrypts the file and opens it with no problems.
now ALL the Word Doc Templates I provided are all encrypted. They still show the .doc file format, like Template001.doc You cant open this without the viewer. if you have the viewer, then you have access to all the tempaltes.
due to non compression applied to my doc files, my installer is 500MB If they werent encrypted, the installation using LZMA is 10MB you can see a huge difference right there.
so I need to keep each doc file encrypted(and leave it still as the the same file extensiton) and have the installer compress the files using LZMA.
Any ideas now?
