If you want to add password protection to a windows batch script, follow the simple steps below

Open notepad by going to Start> All Programs> Accessories> Notepad. Vista and 7 users can just type "notepad, without quotes, into the start menu and hit enter

Copy the following code:

  • :A
  • echo enter password to activate programme
  • set/p "pass=>"
  • if NOT%pass%== passwordhere goto:FAIL

At the end of your programme, you need to add:

  • :FAIL
  • echo Invalid password
  • goto:end
  • :end

Note

Change "passwordhere" to the password of your choice.

This is a very basic password code. Anyone with knowledge of .bat files will still be able to access it.
