On-Premises Encryption Tool

The On-Premises version of LabStats supports encrypting the ConnectionSettings.config file (located at C:\ProgramData\Labstats). The encryption tool is not included in the On-Premises installer, but it can be downloaded here: On-Premises Encryption Tool.

  1. To begin, run the tool as an administrator. If prompted to allow the tool to make changes, click Yes.
  2. The tool will run.
  3. When it’s finished running, the file will be encrypted.
  4. To decrypt the file, just run the tool again and enter the current database password.
    • The tool will then decrypt the file.

If attempting to update to newer versions of LabStats, the file will need to be decrypted before proceeding to update.
