What goes into a keygen? - Page 3

post #21 of 27
I would not ever give hacking / cracking advice to any online forum. BUT! since this is for a class that a teacher asked then the answer is.. still no.

The mods haven't killed this thread because the OP said it was for a class...

ignorance of the TOS is no excuse.

It's abandonware. Whoever wrote it long since gave up on it and nobody enforces the copyright on it.

Depending on the .exe in question, you may be able to use resourcehacker to 'examine' the executable. Also using the keys themselves to find the algorithm could take quite a long time. You may be able to scour the web to find a keygen already out and reverse engineer it, but that may be cheating lol. Try to google 'find algorithm key set' it'll give you an idea of what you need to do. Good luck!

"line up" as in:
xxxx-xxxx
xxxx-xxxx
Then find similarities in the columns, probably want to repeat for EACH character given. Hope that made sense.
NOFACE IS MINE

But yes, i've always wondered how these keygens work.
