 Encrypting compact .EXE's

Hi,

Does anyone nkow of a utility or method to encrypt compact .EXE's?
Foxpro's so-called encryption is easily broken by third party
utilities, and PKLite doesn't touch 'em because of overlays.

TIA

ReFox (one of the third party utilities that can crack the encryption)
also claims to be able to add its own "unbreakable" encryption.  I'll let
someone with actual experience comment on the validity of this claim, as I
only know what I've read in their ads.

From what I understand (reading their blurb), all they do is
incorporate a password in the .exe, so that REFOX can't decode it...
they don't actually encrypt it, just prevent refox from decoding it
if it encounters that password.

So, Refox is probably not suitable.  (But check anyway :-))
