Look guys. I know I am being a plonker and I know it says it is easy but I think I have lost the plot somewhere along the road. I have done.
Basic: (1) (2) (3) (4) (5) (6) (7) (8) (9) (10)
Realistic: (1) (2) (3) (4) (5) (8) (9) (10) (12) (13)
Application: (1) (2) (3) (4) (5) (6) (7) (8) (9) (10) (11) (12) (13)

But this has got me. Where am I stuffing up? I have disassembled app14winzip poked it prodded it and looked up its bum. I have checked out the source code and also used web developer firebug and tamper data on it But I am lost for words. I am missing something and making a dope of myself here but sod it. Someone please give this idiot a hint on where I am going wrong. Please! I am now going to stick my head down the toilet and flush it............ :oops: :lol: :lol: :lol: :oops:

It's all in the source, just read it carefully (or at least the functions that looks interesting).

I never had to disassemble it... just look at it in a hex editor.. remember ITS WINDOWS ONLY FOR A REASON... I found that reason and mostly understand how to beat it.. I talked to Comperr (he wrote the mission) and he said Im right.. but I still need to figure out what to change...

heres a hint:
regedit... now look in the file for something that has to do with that.

when i try to run the application an application error comes up saying: "The application failed to initialize properley (0xc0000135). Click OK to terminate the aplpication."
Is this meant to happen, or is something wrong..?

That sounds like a typical "No .net framework installed" error message. You may install .net framework, however, you don't necessarily need to run the executable to solve this level.

I haven't looked at this one yet, but that is a huge hint lol. I may have to solve this one over lunch :]

It's not a hint, just a possibility. I didn't say it's easier if you do it that way...

I understand its looking for data in r**i*trys, and i know which and where it is. I think its trying to see if the data value is set to a certain value, if so it gives password. However I cant figure out what to put in there. I know it has to be integer too.

Oh and using IL DASM to look at some source....

Think of it like a true/false situation (0 is false, 1 is true) and it checks for a value to proceed and since the def value is zero- what should the new value be? And if you find that the value keeps resetting itself to zero- thats because when you start the program it will set the value to zero so when do you think you should change it? :P
