Thread: how do unpack/dump a 16bit windows app?

    how do unpack/dump a 16bit windows app?

    ok- this is my problem:
    i have an old win 3.11 program exe-packed with something called Shrinker (at least this is the only proper ascii string if you dump it)- but is not recognized by un-pack or file analyser as a packed executable.Procdump and other generic unpackers don't work since it's not 32bit, unp or tron etc. dont work since it's not dos.
    so what can i do- how to find the entry point the program length a working dumper and do i have to fix the dump after all this?
    I promise that I have read the FAQ and tried to use the Search to answer my question.

    You could try checking out the 4 Shrinker tuts at Krobars, under unpacking:

    Maybe you can inline patch it like Risc explains so you don't have to try to rebuild a 16 bit dumped app (what a horrible thought
