    I have a good friend whos wife's cousin would like to know how a key generator works?
    For expample, a downloaded key generator for a particual software is opened up and then it goes to msdos window for split second and then disapears.
    Can anybody help this poor, dumb, person out?

    that doesn't sound much like a keygen to me...

    where did they get the keygen from and do they have an updated anti virus installed?

    Keygens do something like generate a random number based on a mathmatical template which is derived from the serial of paticular software

    As for your Keygen I would suggest either try and break down what the keygen is trying to run in MS-DOS or just find another...

    Yeah.. that sounds more like a batch file than a keygen.

    A keygen simulates the generation of a valid key by simulating/following the algorithms that would be used as validation by the program&#39;s registration system.

    e.g. If a program you were looking for needed a registration code of a 3-digit code that was divisible by three as well as a vowel at the front, you could get a keygen to find a code like "E417" and use that to register the program.

    Often &#39;keygenerators&#39; are not generators at all, but a bunch of keys that are randomnly shown.

    BTW: that MS-Dos window thing sounds a LOT like a dialer or trojan horse.
    Be very careful with keygens as they can contain viruses and such. Always run a good anti-virus and firewall

    If it unlocked the programme it&#39;s a "patch".

    If you want to view the text output of a Microsoft Disk Operating System Program then do the following:
    • Execute the file cmd.exe/command.com*
    • Navigate to the directory with the executable file you wish to investigate**
    • Execute the executable file using the command interpreter
    • The output should remain visible in the command interpreter after the program execution

    To create a keygen*** a person attempts to input a key into said program whilst analysing the data in ram. The assembly code held in the ram at that point in time should allow someone to work out how a key is checked using that program. Some programs also attempt to patch the executable file of the program itself (to override the registration). I reccommend you scan files for viruses before you execute them.


    *cmd.exe should be used for Microsoft Windows 2000/XP and command.com for previous versions.
    **To do this type "<span style='color:blue'>CD X:&#092;
    " into the command interpeter (where X:&#092; is the directory containing the specific executable)
    ***Remember to use keygens only for software you have legally purchased registration codes for.

    So, a fake Keygenerator?
