For your needs the library is fully implemented, you don't need to look into RC4 implementation since the library already has many algorithms.

On your encrypted string problem, it is best to user during installation techniques.

Create an encrypted archive where the user has to provide a product key for the installation to commence.

Read decrypted contents from the archive, encrypt it using any encryption algorithm you like however, use a PRNG to generate the key. Seed the PRNG from the available hardware and host OS and etc.

Then each time you want the plaintext you regenerate your PRNG then decrypt your ciphertext.
