    this post might be "touchy", since I don't really ask for programming help
    but rather hex/patching help

    and before possible flaming begins :p
    I asked a staff member where to post the question and answer was here.

    my question goes, I would really like to know what sections of slc.dll to hex-change
    (on which parts) - for lets say Vista Betas or 7 Betas,not RTM of any Windows OS ! - so just betas
    so they become activated/removed the evaluation period

    I understand this wouldn't be "3 click job", hence why I ask if anyone here has a solid tutorial or knows specific procedures
    as in, which dll calls to change and to what value

    I ask this here because no search engine spits this info
    and truth... MDL is full of knowledgeable people doing this kind of stuff :D

    Hmm i dont think you will learn anything by simply patching the
    nessecary M$ license dll file(s). You should try to RE it yourself
    use a debugger and put breakpoints in right places then you
    will now where to patch:D

    well yes
    that is the thing I'd like to see tutorial/help on

    I know I can't blindly just pick any address in file to change
    but there must be specific function calls (names) and specific value for them to be changed

    If you have experience with programming any level and you want to learn RE
    i might point you in the right direction, but if are not a developer and have
    no intention of learn programming then there is no point in RE.:D
