CODES OPENER

Post by LEGRAND » Mon Jun 11, 2012 2:55 am

Hello!
Can you tell me if there is a program to open secret codes, in particular for folders when you forgot the code you put to secure your data.
Thanks in advance

Are you sure you're trying to open YOUR folders? Or you are trying to crack somebody's else folders?

If you forgot the password then it may as well be somebody else's... :lol:

CODE OPENER

Post by LEGRAND » Tue Jun 12, 2012 6:06 am

your remarks looks right. However,the fact is that I forgot a password and I tried already some internet free program but it opened only four letters. This said, I'm working with a tutorial on secret codes, and found on this site a program named crypto but after a trial any text once crypted, I could not open the file where the coded text was, because it is a .DAT file. and I have nothing to open it.
I'm interested by any codes in that field, especially one to generate high
primes numbers, etc
Any suggestion?

Windows won't recognize the program needed to open a DAT file. Try opening it in Notepad.

This program adds Edit to any type file's Right Click Menu:

Run it ONCE as it fixes the Registry and quits!

It may give an error, but look in your right click menu when you click on any file. Edit will be there. It won't edit EXE files however.

Only run it once! The program just changes the Registry and quits. It also has an uninstaller if needed.

That program was originally made for Windows 98 but it works on my XP...

If you ran the program once, it is done! Don't try to run it again!

Right click a BAS file and you will now see Edit in the Right Click Menu. Now you can Edit the file in Notepad to read it. You don't have to change anything.

If you still can't read it then it is most likely encrypted, a binary file or bad.

IT WORKS and it is funny. All BAS files were converted at the same time.
Is the reverse possible?

Reverse? Do you mean you want them encrypted? QB4.5 and PDS allowed you to do that with Quick Save in the Save As menu. There is a check box for that or text readable by other programs. You had to do that one at a time however.
