To execute Encryption Protection through a command line
Encryption Protection can be executed by a command line to facilitate the periodical tasks of securing files with a given key-phrase. This way, a pre-determined working process of either encrypting, decrypting or shredding a file can be done by a single click on a button or can be initiated by another application.
If you don't want to feed another application with a Encryption Protection-command-line, we recommend to create a simple shortcut on your desktop that will carry and initiate it. What you need to do is, go to your Encryption Protection installation folder (probably in c:\program files\Encryption Protection 60), right click the Encryption Protection executable file and choose 'create shortcut'. Cut that newly created shortcut out of the Encryption Protection application folder and paste it onto your desktop. Go to your desktop, right click your shortcut, open the 'Properties' tab, look for the path of the shortcut to the actual executable file in your Encryption Protection application folder and put a command line right next to it (keep one space in between though).
If you are looking to execute the File Shredder through a command line, scroll this page further down to read on.
The following elements are needed in this very order to form a command line to either encode or decode:
Start with the path to the executable file of the Encryption Protection application in its installation folder. Probably it will be: "c:\program files\Encryption Protection 6\Encryption Protection.exe".
encode/decode= choose either one of the terms.
src= This is the path of the source file you intend to either encode or decode.
dest= This is the path of the destination file the results of this task will be saved in. If you are encoding some data, the destination file will need to have either a .hta, .html or a .shy-extension. If you are decoding a file, the destination file will need to have exact the same extension it had before it was encoded.
key= This is the path of to the file on your computer containing your key-phrase. All key-phrases saved from within the Encryption Protection application have a double extension. A key-phrase named "mykeyphrase" will be saved on your computer as "mykeyphrase.key.txt". You will need include the double-extension of your key-phrase into this path. However, if you saved your key with a notepad, it has the .txt-extension only.
Encryption Protection totally obeys to your command line, it does not correct any wrongly specified extensions. When you are naming the path of a file to be decrypted in the src-parameter, you need to recall the original extension of that file it had before it was encrypted. When you are specifying your destination file (in which the decrypted picture is to be saved in) to be 'myplainpicture.gif' even though it was originally 'myplainpicture.jpg', the actual decrypting process will flow off perfectly, but you will not be able to view your picture because of its wrong extension.
Example of a Command Line to either Encode or Decode:
Say you intend to encrypt an invoice written on MS Word called 'myinvoice' over and over again, and at every time you intend to use a key-phrase-file previously created and saved by Encryption Protection called 'mykeyphrase', and you want to have the encrypted file named 'securedinvoice' and have it placed on your root drive, use the following command line:
c:\program files\Encryption Protection 60\Encryption Protection.exe encode
src=c:\myinvoice.doc dest=c:\securedinvoice.shy
key=c:\mykeyphrase.key.txt
If this time, you intend to decrypt the same invoice over and over again using the same key-phrase, the following command line could look like this:
c:\program files\Encryption Protection 50\Encryption Protection.exe decode
src=c:\securedinvoice.shy dest=c:\myinvoice.doc
key=c:\mypassphrase.key.txt
Once all parameters are perfectly set, click OK and close your shortcut. From now on, all you'll need to do to initialize the process of encryption of this document is to click on your icon on the desktop. Of course you can create as many shortcuts as you like, each one of them assigned with a different task.
Example of a Command Line to execute the File Shredder:
Say you intend to shred 'myinvoice' on your root drive, use the following command line (no parenthesis between "shred" and the path to the file to be shredded):
c:\program files\Encryption Protection 50\Encryption Protection.exe shred c:\myinvoice.doc
