    You can't. Instead, you have to go back to the original project, edit that, and create a new executable.

    You can't edit an executable (well, not easily). I hope that you have saved the source code. For a standard VB6 application, it consists of at least a project file with extension .vbp, a form (files with extension .frm and .frx) and possibly others. Open the project by double clicking the .vbp file in Windows Explorer or by opening it from within VB6.

    A password to edit what? You can certainly password protect a project but that has nothing to do with making it an executable.
