Hi,

 

I was wondering if someone could post past topics or suggestions in relation to encryption of your EA? I am looking for something simple (preferably free) which can encrypt or disable an EA.

 Also i currently have XML RPC in my EA but my hosting and stuffed up something and need to find an alternative.  

Any suggestions or help would be much appreciated! Thanks in advance and have a good day!

The EA is already ecrupted by compiler. Why do you need additional encryption?

The compiler does NOT encrypt an EA.

Only ex4/ex5 published on mql5.com Market are encrypted.

So every EA not published/sold on mql5.com can be decrypted, if compiled with the default editor?

I thought once an ex4 file - always an ex4 file :(

You can't decrypt something which is not encrypted.

An ex4/ex5 is compiled, same security level as a DLL. A compiled can always by decompiled, but it's not a trivial task, and you will never get the original source code.

On mql5.com Market, ex4/ex5 are encrypted, which provide a higher security level.
