    Help with Ultra Edit ver 7.20a

    Hi all

    I've just managed to patch the latest version of Ultra Edit ver 7.20a. However it was'nt my intention to patch it, I started out fishing for the serial, but after a few days of no luck decided to make do with patching it.

    I'm usualy quite good at tracing serials, but this prog has so far beaten me! I just can't seem to even get near to it. I know the damn prog must check the serial that I enter with the real one somewhere - but where, I just do not know!

    Can anyone give me a hint as to where I should be looking for this serial check? Is there some method I can use to track it down? I've tried breaking on hmemcpy, GetWindowTextA, GetDlgItemTextA etc, but they don't work. After entering a username and serial the prog informs you that it must shut down to check the serial, so I guess that it must do it's check when you restart it.

    Please can someone help, I'm clean out of ideas.

    I did not personally try out Ultra Edit v7.20a, but I tried older versions before. What Ultra Edit did was to read a .reg file. When you're asked to restart the program, UltraEdit will read the .reg file for the serial and verify it. Your strategy here in your case would be bpxing on CreateFileA and get the handle of the .reg file, then bpx ReadFile when the handle is used. UltraEdit will then decode the Name/Serial combo and starts messing around it like what a normal serial check would do. Hope this helps
