If OpenEdge is started with -rx, you can only compile encrypted source code. Use -rx when you are shipping an application in the form of encrypted source code to end-user sites having query or run-time versions of OpenEdge. You must prepare a tool that end users can run to compile your code, and this tool must include a command that invokes OpenEdge with -rx.
