Is the exe meant to run?  I have Windows 8, and it gives me an error message and wants me to reinstall the exe using setup?

Can it still be solved with Olly?

cheers

Neither nor, I assume...

I think this one is more tricky. But I didn't try very hard! So, maybe I'm wrong...

But tell me where you got your Windows 8 from...  Tongue

It is not meant to run, but that doesn't mean you can't get it running Wink take a look at what it is checking for and perhaps see what is missing that makes it think there is an installation error Smiley

I suggest also taking a look at the 'type' of crackit you have here. It can be solved without olly or WDASM if you have this information...

This caused me a lot of grief, simply because of one wrong assumption. Something to watch: there is a whole class of .exe which neither OllyDbg nor the free IDA can handle, no matter how hard you try Tongue This is a blind alley. There are other, much nicer ways ... which was a real eye-opener for me.

Is this challenge doable on linux (Ubuntu 16.04 LTS)?
No debugger seems to be able to correctly identify the main function.
I've found a possible missing dependency, "U[redacted]s.dll", but i can't find any mono package that includes it.
Aside from that i can't find anything fishy about the executable, so i might need a hint.
