C++ Decompiler v8.1 problem

Post icon  Posted 31 October 2009 - 01:57 AM

Hello,
:)

Got a problem for ya...

I downloaded a trial version of
C++ Decomplier. I was told by "Snowfake"
who's a member of this forum, in order to
edit my rom file, which is a binary rom file,
is to use a "Decomplier".

I found C++ Decomplier, and when I opened it
up, it only ask to load files that are
"Excualbe PE file(exe)".
My binary rom file is NOT an EXE file in order to be open.
But what I did was I added an "EXE" after the
Rom format then to load on C++ Decomplier.

Okay, once I loaded my binary rom file as in "exe"
for C++ Decomplier, then the next step is to
output as in dpr, pas, and cpp format.

So what I did was I selected the output location
on my computer, and then typed in the name of
my binary rom file, and then typed in "dpr" after
the rom file.

Then the next thing was to select the output
project.

Delphi project - or - Build C+++.

I chosen Build C+++ option.

Then last I clicked on "Decomplier".

Then the next thing happen was a pop up
message that said:

"Excutable file probably packed crypted.
Please try again."

So I clicked "OK".

What did I do wrong here???

Would anyone please explain what am I
suppose to do with my binary rom file, CLEARLY??
And whether is this is the right tool that I'm trying out.
It's a C++ Decomplier v8.1.1 tool.

Would appreciate your answers.

Thank you,
Eugene

I have not use the program. However, just renaming an extension does not make it an *.exe file, the same way taking a *.ccp and renaming it *.exe won't make it run. All the extension does it tell other programs how to interpret and use the file in question. So unless the program has support for the file, most likely, it will not work the way you are trying.

First, it's a decompiler, not a decomplier.

Second, what's the origin of the file? You do realize you're not going to get C/C++ source code out of it, right? Read the sticky.

Hi,
:)
All I can say is I'm tring to do an experiemt with
my ROM file which is also a binary file to make it
work on my digital satellite receiver, which receives
DVB & MPEG2 formats. Or you cold say Free-to-Air,
FTA.

I was told by someone is to find a "Decomplier"
that would open my bin-rom file to add source
code in it which runs on the processor in the
fta satellite receiver.

My digital fta satellite receiver works like a "computer".
It has 243 MHz processor, 512 SD memory,
it doesn't have a smart card attached top it.
But it requires bin-rom files flashes by using either a
RS-232 cable inteface or USB drive stick, to send a
bin-rom file with new source codes that runs on the
processor.

The bin or rom file are only 1 to 5 MB in sizes to
be flash into the unit.

Thank you,
ECruz
