[Request] - Windows Title Change ( Permanent )

<< < (3/3)

KodeZwerg:
Hi there scriptkid, there is no secure way to change an applications caption/title except by "WinSpy" things like publicdomain does.

Example:
File has crc checks inside = file would become corrupted.
File is packed (exe packer) = you cant find proper offset.

Another limitation by exe patching would be, caption/title (yes, there are two of them) new name must be same length or shorter, but never longer than original.

Sorry to kill your dream/wish for a permanent patching mechanism.

Thank you,

The main.exe is not protected and secondly the provider allows us to hook a .dll so im 100% sure it's unpacked and CRC check we have control on what files to include

Cheers!

This solution can be deemed "permanent" as long as you don't revert to the original file names...

Let's give this one a try scriptkid. We can grow in complexity as the situation demands it.

We're going to accompany you all the way for achieving this; going from simpler to more complex solutions until one fits :Thmbsup:

Cheers!

UPDATE: main functionality is complete :) Only small details such as about box remain... (I'm devoting to it)

In-place allows for launchers to replace target programs in disk so start menu + other shortcuts continue to work smoothly.

It also got easier since the "previous title" field is not needed any longer.



If you want to peek at the code, MainForm.cs

Formal release for fellow users in the making! Cheers
