I had an interesting read over at the “Old new thing” website. Discussing if it’s possible to open a file by its id rather then using its full qualified path and filename. You can find the original article here: Raymond Chen     Background On NTFS every single file on a volume has a object identifier which is a 16-byte buffer. If a file doesn’t have an object identifier you can ask for one to be created for this you need to make use of FSCTL_CREATE_OR_GET_OBJECT_ID.           As...

Well I came across a really nice site from R.M.Klever which contains a few well designed Delphi components one of those which are quite new is his Aerotabs component. Great work! Almost the one and only I have ever found which works absolute correctly on glass for now.     From the authors site: I wanted to try to get my rkSmartTabs to work with aero in Vista/Win7 and this is the result. The result is good, not perfect, but it works and shows how it can be done. Gdi+ is used to render the tabs so you will need it. When using it with...

Windows 7 Product-Key Verification

Posted by on Jun 1, 2010 in Delphi, Programming | 1 comment

Well you might have heared of it a tool from a Russian programmer where you can validate your windows seven product key. Be careful! The tool itself was written in Delphi and so it was easy to look at it a little deeper. Well from what I’ve found I can say it’s sending your windows product key to a server on the net! However I found it interesting how the validating process is done. So again research on the net and with the mentioned Delphi tool I found out it uses the pidgenx.dll which resides inside your system folder. The Function...
