if thats the problem, how about distributing your scripts compressed? one has to use some tricks (select the compressed 64#{..} and store it to a file using write %file.r #{..}). thats similar effort as compiling?

*grin*: %start-script.r : rebol[] do %application-script.exe with normal rebol-code there. word & co will not open. windows will say its broken, but you its a special kind which needs to be started by the rebol-script. usual users will handle it respectfully and more skilled are clever enough not to edit code with word? *gg*
