I confirmed resulting 404 pages for at least a few URLs.

A specific example URL is:

  http://www.donationc...dHide/RunAndHide.exe

i temporarily renamed the exes so skrommel could rebuild them without upx.

maybe the current exe files can decompressed without recompiling? upx allows decompression unless it's password-protected.

I hope someone can help here.  Is it going to be possible to download this piece of software soon?  Regards,  AlanLB.

I'm rushing here but maybe someone could give instructions how to download & use the AHK scripts (maybe even add it to the top of his software page)

BTW, I tried this today on 100 or so of Skrommel's tools and didn't have luck with any of them.  Has any one else tried?  If any of you are/were successful, would you mind sharing the command line options you used?

The decompression seemed to worked for me too, but when trying to run the resulting .exe,  there was a dialog box that said something about the exe being corrupted.  I only used the -d option which overwrites the original file.  May be I'll try what you suggested.  Thanks.

Hmm, no apparent difference in results here.  Still get a similar-looking dialog: "EXE corrupted" when I try to run the resulting exe.  FWIW, the original exe does run fine.

i'm afraid that i didn't check properly earlier. decompressed files do error out saying that the exe is corrupted. not sure why.. :o
