Is it possible to protect a study?

Postby Zoli » 13 Oct 2012

Hi,

I was wondering if anyone managed to find a way to protect a study.

What do you mean by "protect"? Something like version control?

Hi Holya,

Should have been more specific, sorry about that.
In the regular MC's Powerlanguage there is an option in Tools->Protect Study. That way your studies can be used but can't be modified.
I see there are no Add-ons for the .net version and that is mainly why I am curious, is it because they haven't converted them yet or because they can't be protected?
Also I am curious how the built in functions are made, you can open them in read-only mode but can't change them.
It might seem like a silly question but it really made me curious.

Well, MC.net is supposed to be able to modify(compile) studies. If most of the time you find yourself wanting to do that maybe regular MC is a better option for you.

The most effective protection is to move the main part of the code into C++ library and then reference this library from C# study.

We are going to post "How to protect MC .Net study" guide in the future. There is no ETA for it yet.
