thanks so much for the quick response....
so i did just that and even used the arrow keys to move through the document character by character to be sure i'm not missing anything, but the only thing i've found besides what i mentioned earlier is a few strings of numbers and commands...none of which seem to work as the application password :?: :oops: :?:
i'm a bit of a n00b and a late starter (i'm already in my twenties) at this...can i get yet one more nudge in the right direction...this is killing me because i know i must LITERALLY have the answer in my lap but something's just not clicking...thanks for reading
peace!

You are definitely on the right track. Are you entering the input in the correct place? Just so you know, I just tested this mission and it works.

Also just tested. Remember what you are trying to get the password for exactly, and think about what a SN might look like.

truth.

I feel like I cheated though. I'm going to head to McDonalds and see if those points are good.

I don't know how I did it, I opened the program in a Hex editor, I searched and I found the password, But I didn't understand a thing in the hex-editor. Now, My request is, can I get the source code of the application so that I can understand the basics of what happened?

May I ask something? The program requires a serial number so I can verify my license... So is this what I have to find out?

First: don't ask to ask, ask the question, we'll decide to answer it (or not). Secondly, that is the point of this exercise, similar to the rest of the challenges you have to find a way to make the application return the password or circumvent it. Good luck!
