Project Settings

Every LockXLS Project has a few common options, shown on the main LockXLS window:

Project Folder - LockXLS copies all output files (encrypted Excel documents, executables) into this folder. Also, it is recommended to keep all project files in this folder.

Create locked files in the "Locked" subfolder If this option is checked, LockXLS creates a sub-folder named Locked in the Project Folder. All output files, created by LockXLS (XLS, EXE and MSI) are placed into this folder.

Important: When this option is disabled, LockXLS saves all files into the Project Folder. But in this case every compiled file receives suffix _Locked. In this case original files are not overwritten by locked files with same names.
