This is really bad:(.... I found a program that can literally run a program backwards!!! It disassembles any .prc an shows the source code execution!!! I suggest for all you developers to use some kind of encryption... I created a basic "registration" program where you have to enter a unlock key and POOF!! everything was on the screen...the whole source code and the registration key...
If anyone needs more info send me an e-mail at R_A_Y_B_U_R_N@hotmail.com

ps. Im not too sure about what tis program does (im only 14:D)

If you generate registeration codes from the user's name (see the getsysval function to get this), then there won't be any password hidden inside an app which can be readily seen.
