Arca Database (with password) from Director to LiveCode SQLite

Post by booee » Mon Dec 02, 2019 7:58 pm

This is a real long shot, but I thought I'd give it a shot anyway.

I built an application in Adobe Director, and the user's files were saved in an SQLite database file.
It used an Xtra called "Arca Database" in the Director App, and you could password protect the files (which I did).

I was hoping to build a viewer for these files in Livecode, however, as I mentioned there is a password associated with them (that I created and I know the password). Unfortunately, in the SQLite for Livecode, there doesn't appear to be an option to open an SQLite database with an associated password.

I'm curious if anybody else has dealt with (and/or found a discover for) opening up encrypted or password-protected SQLite database files in Livecode.

Thanks so much for any insights!
