I have a file which is included in a number of pages

<!-- #include file="../_script/vb/blah.vbs" -->

The script includes some constants that I have been told to encrypt some how.
Using the windows encryption tool I encrypted this script creating a vbe copy of the file.
The problem I have is that other pages that include this file cant see it and when I change the references to

<!-- #include file="../_script/vb/blah.vbe" -->

the pages cant read the constants as they are encrypted.

What am I missing?
Do I neefd to encrypt everything that includes this script as well?
