Hi,
I have a pro, a small MIDI utility for Yamaha Tg33, which wants you to pay for it. I decided to crack it. I killed the nag, but when I slick on "Save" or "Save as" it tells me ut's a demo. How can I understand if I can crack it or wheter the function isn't present in the code?
Thanx

you have to trace it until you see where the test to show this msg is.
try for example to invert the test and see what happens.

Hi,

Also, you could try to check the imports to see if the comdlg dll functions like GetSaveFileA are present. If they are, it strongly suggests the presence of the code and that the proggy is crackable.
