A (too) difficult one for me using olly - offline activation process

Post by patator »

Hello to all and happy new year !

Normally, I should connect first a hardware to my pc and then I would be able to generate an Activation Request Number that can be send by email or automatically by the program. I will then receive the activation number that can be used offline to activate the software, to be used only with my hardware.

I would like some help to take me through the different steps I should take. I want to learn how to proceed and not get somebody to do it for me (the software is available online if necessary)

Well I've been reading many forums and tutorial (including this great one : http://thelegendofrandom.com/blog/archives/258).
I have to say I don't know what to do since after running my challenging program in Olly, I get quickly an error message "Olly is unable to step over the command at address 0000. Memory is not readable".

After reading, a tutotarial from the above website, I tried to find manually the different actions that are taken when it comes to activate the software (30 days trial).
I end up finding the following :

Code: Select all

008D2D45  MOV EAX,008D2E28                         UNICODE 	Activation - Activated
The different options I imagine :
-extending the trial period to more than 30 days : 008D2D16 MOV EAX,008D2DBC UNICODE Activation - Not Activated - %d trial days left
- bypass the activation process
- create a key generator
-.....

Could you help me to move towards the right way
thanks
