Question Serial checking using DLL


I've been trying to understand how a particular target application checks for a valid serial number during installation. I was able to isolate the DLL which gets called (available here).

As far as I can tell, the installer calls to DLValidateSerialNumber_Var and passing pointers to the result code (0x00 if ok, 0x7d2 if not) but somehow, the algorithm is quite freaky.

I've already discovered that the total length of the serial needs to be exactly 22 characters and that it should start with FP90 but the rest remains unclear.

Is someone able to bring a little bit of light into this?

The target's full name is PTI FusionPro 9.3
