How I can block with password multiple VI's of a project?

I can block with password multiple VI's of a project (200 Vi's). Is it possible?

 

not on a programmatically way, please.

 

Thanks.

Are you asking if there's a menu option to do this? There is not. You have to do it for each one.

 

Of course, this begs the question as to why you are doing this. Password protecting VIs isn't necessarily a good security mechanism: http://thinkinging.com/2007/08/19/password-protecting-vis-is-security-through-obscurity/

Create a source distribution in your project and then...

Ah, that makes sense. Misunderstood the premise of the question. I thought he was trying to protect a subset of VIs.

 

Still not convinced that password protection is a good way to do it.

sorry, but the distribution did not create a new project, and are 1400 VI's. is very heavy create a new project and reorganize the VI's.

 

I need protect the Block Diagram to deliver it to the university without being able to see.
