Once compiled into an executable, the username and password is fairly safe. Yes, there are very rare decompilers out there, but safe to the normal user community. I chose this method of VBS2EXE type applications since those applications have a tendancy to extract the data in pure text either in local folder or temp folder. This method extracts to memory.
Once compiled, take the execuatable and apply with a scheduled task so that the mapped drive will be available regardless of user logon.
Tested and works.
