[quote=GoldStar611;1930915]to quote myself in a private message earlier, try this darien
renaming acrobat.exe to PPTview.exe won’t trick hexalock, because it knows what version comes with the files. Try renaming it to one of these:
quicktimeplayer.exe, qt32.exe, qt.exe, powerpnt.exe, notepad.exe, netscape.exe, mspaint.exe, mshta.exe, mplayer2.exe, kodakprv.exe, iexplore.exe
Try powerpnt.exe first then like notepad or qt32.exe and see what results you get. Trial and error. Don’t forget to start the protection (Start_Here.exe) on the disk as well.[/quote]
Making progress here… I renamed the file to powerpnt.exe… and I ran the Start_Here.exe from the disk first like you suggested…
but now it errors and says “Run Time error 75” “Path/File access error” this is for part 1… so part two is not engaging and therefore no file is written to the disk…
it does however launch the file… so it does somehow launch the file in PPTView.exe (which can’t save), but it’s still not able to write it to the Hard Disk.
could it be that I don’t have common dialog tools and winsock correctly installed… I’m sorry but I’m pretty new to this… I had to search for and install these things…
any help is appreciated,
P.S. How long should this take… sometimes I try this and it just gets stuck in part 2… for minutes… does it take a long time or should it be almost instant?
