2. Help
  • I opened a .exe in notepad++ and just got a lot of crazy code which is unreadable. I don't know what to do to make it readable and aditeble.

    any suggestions

    here is a bit of the crazy code, see what you make of it:

      Notepad++ is source code (text) editor. It isn't ment to be used to edit binary files. You should download some HEX editor, resource editor or maybe some disassembler - depending on what you want to do with the exe file.

    • thank you for your reply.

      which HEX editor would you recoment?

    • Notepad++ edits binary files just fine. Crude hex tools are available in Plugins | TextFX Convert.
