It says it's freewear so should be fine to put it up here . I have tested it and it works a treat . There are ways around it but that's always the case.
I must of tried upwards of 20 of these types of app and this is the only one that really works . Enjoy your day.

The only flaw I have found is if you open the zip file to see what's in it but if you right click on the zip and extract straight away it will not show the media file .

  Anyway what I've just tried is this hide the media file in the folder . Right click on the folder ( you'll need 7zip) click on 7zip then archive then choose the wim file extension . I just uploaded one of my games this way and when downloaded the media file is still hidden and people cannot poke around in the wim file . Not sure what other zip programs implement this . I've wanted to be able to do this for some time (years) and now have a solution.

I did a full virus scan and it's coming up clean with no bad stuff.

Well unfortunately there is a flaw with this app although I still find it useful . If you go into developer options and uncheck hide system files it then becomes visible although your average Joe Blogs would not know this . Just thought I would mention this .

Hi well I've got a different system now to deter people from messing with the graphics. I use a folder lock which can be read when locked and a self extracting .exe file so no reason to go near it with 7zip or something similar.  Not exactly fool proof but it'll do for now until I come up with something better. I have played with 7zip and it can look into pretty much any file . I just lock the media file and hopefully it'll make it a bit less accessible. Kind of decided hiding files on somebody else's computer is a bit unethical as well . Have a nice day and enjoy your coding .
