    See if you can try changing it directly in memory before this window about termination pops up.

    It worked perfectly! +1,000,000 rep points. :) Now to figure out how you found those offsets....

    I searched for GetVersionEX then to narrow down which sub to attack I changed some instructions so setup would crash, when I found the right sub
    I noped some jump instructions so the code would not branch.

    So that's how you did it. Up until now I only knew how to search for "Version=" or "VersionNT=". I went back and recreated your method, and sure enough, it worked at the same offset you posted earlier. I feel suddenly enlightened! :D
