Or you could use XVI32. It's pretty simple.

So I am an idiot, thank you for posting the link. Anyone here use Hacker's Disassembler? I am using it and I can't find any strings related to the application making this hard for me. Without locating the jumps how do I break them?

I don't think you actually need to disassemble the program for this one. Try viewing it a different way.

Well like a precious reply said, I trued using Notepad ++ but it shows up completely encrypted, I tried a few different languages and nothing showed anything.

By the way I would do the basic cracking tutorials but I am not looking for http cracking, I am only interested in application/software cracking.

I just starting today if you can't already tell. I have read through MULTIPLE guides, watched several videos, and used MANY different programs which took hours to find. I have a general idea, and I am very certain as to how it's all done as I program, the trouble I have is executing what needs to be done. Oddly enough.

Teehee.
Anyway, make sure you're looking at everything before you conclude that it's not the right idea.

Well that was not fun, Is this typical? For a program to hide strings from Olly and other disassmbler's? I wonder why I couldn't locate it.

Eh i doubt it. If people wanted to, they would write actual comments in the language that they were writing it.
