    Hi, I am new to this component. I am working on some stuff that compress files in a .exe file, with password. The problem is the password for extraction is personal. If the person is on vacation, we do need a master password, which is only known by specific people, to keep going.

    Is there anyone have any idea about how to do this?

    Thanks

    Yvonne

    Unfortunately, there is no way to set two password on a file.  The password is used as a key to encrypt data (in combination with the encryption strength property, and of course the encryption method), so if you change the password, you change the encryption output.  So when decrypting, you need the exact same key to be able to restore the data.
