Packed I think
I was looking for a vb application to practice on then i ended up on this program when i was trying to debug it it says
"this software cannot run if system debuggers are on the background"

Does that mean that it is packed? if so can anyone point me to the right direction on getting pass this?

well it could be packed or the author would have added a check to see if there are any debuggers present .

see ya

How do i go about bypassing that?

By locating the section where the application find's you debugger, and then patch it..

everytime i change i change even just a single bite and save it it comes out as corrupted when i run it. lol i guess this ones too advance for me

you might be in for a crc check as well and if that is the case check where such an error is generated and then kill it(i.e. reverse engineer it ;))

Hi marcus,

I quickly looked at that program you're talking about (From which the URL has been removed by the admin), and that program has been protected with Armadillo.
So either do some research about Armadillo and try to unpack it, or leave the program alone :D

Thanks dude, yeah currently having some research on that. thanks :D
