Portable apps and encryption

Is there a way to encrypt before distribute the application with portable device, in order to prevent the copy of the distributed software? I need some help. Please email me: francesco.pannuti@nethical.net

This is called DRM, and, being an open-source community, I doubt you'll find anyone here who's going to support it, much less give you any pointers on how to do it. I know I won't.

Also: please don't ask people to email you to answer a question. The whole point of posting on a forum is so that people don't have to go through the trouble of emailing you to answer your question.

You want to encrypt the application so that nobody can make a copy it. That's a basic form of DRM--digital restrictions management. DRM is like what they're using on digital music these days so you can't copy it, burn it to a CD, etc. Basically, full-fledged DRM will prevent you from doing anything except reading/running/listening to/watching the content.
