Password Protecting The Data
It is recommended for CemEditor version 3
or above to use the built in CemToCD utility when
publishing to create a CD or DVD
This CemEditor utility makes a copy and password
protects your final database file so that only
you or the CemViewer can open this file. It
does not alter your existing database.
Using the Utility
To start the utility click on the CemEditor
"Final Steps - Data Protection" Tab, then click
on "Password Protect Database"
The following screen should display:
- The database name you are currently editing
will be displayed
- Enter the Password you want to use to
use to protect your database. Re-Enter the
password and write it down. You
will need it later.
- Click on "Password Protect Database" The new
password protected database will be the same name
as your old database with a "-P" following the
- Re-Open CemEditor and Edit another database.
This utility also creates your "Starter.BOX" file
which is distributed with your published CD. The
Starter.box file only contains the database name
for the CemViewer. Clicking on the Starter.Box
file will automatically open the database in the
CemViewer. You may also edit this file with a
text editor like Notepad or Wordpad.
