DoneEx XCell Compiler 2.4reviewed by Tony Hill (rating: 4/5) on
DoneEx XCell Compiler is used for protection of Excel spreadsheets, which is done by compiling Excel file and saving it into exe format.
Because Excel formulas can still be viewed directly from VBA (Visual Basic for Applications), there is also an option to prevent access to VBA code. Before compiling, you can also set end user license agreement (EULA) to show before each start, add splash image, icon, set target Excel (can be 32 or 64 bits) and add additional information, such as contact and copyright information.
For further protection, output files can be locked with password, and if you will be using spreadsheets only on single computer, hardware locking can be set, which will make them viewable only from the target computer. You can also limit access to a date period, or by setting a trial version, you can make spreadsheets available only for a number of days.
DoneEx XCell Compiler may come especially handy to companies and businesses, who want to restrict access to private or critical data contained in Excel spreadsheets. It is also ideal for sending such files over the internet, while still maintaining the necessary privacy.
