[Request] - Windows Title Change ( Permanent )
« on: September 12, 2019, 12:27 AM »
Hello Coders!

This is my 1st day here in this forum and i've been seeing some good codes here so why not try to request :)

Request:

A new DLL to change the default windows title for the .exe since the developer doesn't want to remove their branding even we paid for the files and services.

Must be:
    • Permanent
    • .DLL to hook to .exe

Here's the screenshot of the default windows title that they don't want to remove

Thank you so much and if this is a paid one just let me know the price.

God bless!

Welcome to the forum @scriptkid, I'm in!

Please paint a bit more of the scenario to see if the best use-case is a DLL, a "launcher" program or perhaps a direct EXE change at the binary file level.



It can be accomplished via creating a single-purpose program for starting the application hidden, changing the title using the windows API, then making the windows visible.

This would be the "soft" approach and a good starting point which doesn't require anything further other than the .exe name you have there.

Let's try this first!

What's the exact .EXE file name?

Cheers!

"Permanent" aint a hook.... permanent = patching .exe file.
In general you can use any "WinSpy" program thats avail to change application caption, so no need to invent something new.
sorry bad english and Delphi are my hobby ;)
politeness is not one of my strengths in writing, just because it sounds rough doesn't mean that I mean it rough.

Wait! Please allow me to finish a window title changer generator so YOU can use it on your own...

(This way it can help the most)

Sorry to ask since i'm not really good with coding, this will just change the tile by opening it?

Thanks!

Yes, a new standalone "launcher.exe" is compiled/generated to be placed in the same folder as the target program.

When the user opens this launcher file, it starts the target program (hidden), monitors in a loop while it loads, then changes title bar text to whatever you configured it to be.

Once it's changed, the target program is finally made visible; this way the user never gets to see the original title message.

It should be finished during the weekend, as I've done user-initiated compilation before. No prob.
