I need a option to force the EXE to open the XLSC if it exists in the same folder.
My EXE saves data that is entered by the client, saved to XLSC
I can not have the client the chance to open the original EXE and overwrite the XLSC data
I tried the batch file option to open the EXE with command line option make my clients IT nervous
Can not get a Windows shortcut to work
I can not ask my client to open via CMD each time, they have 12 different EXE files
Your case will be solved thanks to the new great feature we’ll release in the incoming XLS Padlock 2020.2. This feature allows users to only save some cell values you defined and not the entire workbook file. So that, when you update the original workbook file and ship the new EXE to customers, the latter will open the updated workbook and be able to restore cell values from their save file.
