A little program that came to my mind when I had a stack of work lying around. ;-)

The key routine is pretty simple, so the solution should contain a description of how the protection works and how it could be removed.

Have fun.

name = 123456
serial = 123456
Good job!?

If u put the name and the same name as serial (only numbers) u'll have the good boy msgbox!!
Maybe this is a little bug =)

It's not a bug in and of itself. As I said the checkroutine is pretty crappy, the job is to name the algorithm which is performed on the entered key.

Sorry for the vague instructions in the description. I promise a better checkroutine and more clear instructions next time. ;-)

i compile a keygen...but i think something is missing! there can be more than one true serial for a name right?

Yes this is correct, don't worry. ;-)

My keygen for now goes into an infinite loop. Its hard to generate big and small letters, symbols and numbers with the appropriate conditions for the sums to be equal!I need more time and peacefull mind... o_0
I hope the solution will be ready soon... :)
Great job nait!
