Select a CHM file to protect


Don't change these options!  The correct options are:

oRestore to: Current Directory

oRun selected File enabled

oExtract Files in Virtual Zone enabled

If you need Copy Protection, you must enable Lock to Storage Medium.  When you enable this option, you must save your project on your destination medium (HD, USB-stick, optical disk)!

Click on the selected CHM file to mark it as 'run file'.

Click on the button: Build Archive. You can select the destination medium and the type of archive you like: PPA (Project Packer Archive file) or EXE (standalone EXE file). You will see this dialog if the operation was successful:




Click on the OK button


Now, you have a protected CHM document:


Protected CHM file




Project Packer has only original file protection and copy protection for CHM files. Content Protection, Edit Protection and Print Protection are disabled when you protect a CHM-file. As a secure alternative, convert your CHM file to one of the other supported formats, with a third party tool, and protect that file with Project Packer.
