I am writing the test sequence for third party vendor. I wanted to know if there is any way to create executable file of .seq
Our basic intension is to hide the test details in the sequence file, and just provide exe if it can be created.
If it is not possible to create exe, is there any way I can make my sequence password protected so that no one else can edit/modify the steps?
Thanks and Regards,

Firstly, you can password protect your sequence. TestStand help: Password Protection—When enabled, the sequence file is protected and you can change the lock state of the file. The sequence editor and user interfaces prevent viewing and editing of locked sequence files. Use the Lock/Unlock button with the password controls to lock, unlock, and password protect the file.
if you want to distribute your code it is possible but you'll need teststand or a custom user interface to run your code.Since you only have a sequence file I guess this is a small project and teststand might not be the best solution to share your code with customers

I am using "Password Protect" option to prevent my sequence file from viewing. I went through the following steps -
But, when I am opening the sequence file again, I was expecting it to prompt me for the password, but instead it is opening as it is and I am able to see all the steps in the sequence file. The sequence is viewable.
Strangely, when I shared the same sequence with my colleague and asked him to open the file in his TestStand, it is prompting for the password, and steps are not viewable to him. We also cross-checked by putting the password which I had set earlier, the sequence is opening with that password.
Just wondering if this has anything to do with my TestStand settings? Please help me understand why the password protection feature is not working on my Teststand.
Thanks and Regards,

Does it still occurs after rebooting the computer? Maybe TestStand somehow knows you set the password so you aren't promped for the password. (just guessing)
