Password Protect Programs

By asdfoui ·
Hi everybody,

I am looking for a program (single exexutable) that waits in hidden mode for a password to be typed and than starts an other program.

There should not be a dialoge identifying the password protection / telling you to type in the password.

It does not have to be very secure, but hidden!

I found something similar (Launcher by Igor Lopatin) but it shows a window asking for the password.

okay, so you are to put the password in...
without a window?

there must be an input area or the program is useless.

no user interaction without it.

The only way to do that without a window would be to have a key watcher program that watches your keyboard input and looks for the sequence of keys that comprise your password. all strokes on the keyboard are initially passed through to whatever has the focus. Once the magic sequence has been entered it triggers the launch of the program. I do not know of a program that does this but that is how it would be done.
