1. encypt
2. save as an MDE

3. in autoexec:
not F_StartUp() Quit
... StopAllMacros

4. in the function F_StartUp() as boolean

If UCase(CurrentUser()) = "ADMIN" Then
F_StartUp = False
Else
F_StartUp = True
End If

and so on . . . .

Easily broken. I think Michael Kaplan got ticked at the vendors who were selling
such a decrypter for $$$ so he wrote his own and posted it on his website.
2. save as an MDE


Agreed

Try doing a compile, Ctrl+G to get to the VBA editor and see what errors need
fixing.
