Default 2005 flexlm help

Hi all,

I have an exe running flexlm. I'm trying to recover the seeds but the program won't break at my set breakpoints.

arguments: -t FX-PC 4 c dummy.dat
The program never stops at the breakpoints.
Output:
License Activation Failed
loaction registry "Value" name not specified on command line.

If I run the same arguments as the shortcut to the target.
arguments: generic SOFTWARE\Xerox\VIPP VIPP_STARTUP_FILE
I get a window to browse for and select my dummy license the program.
The program never stops at the breakpoints and just ends.

If I run the exe from windows I get A log error msg that the software license cannot be installed and validated.

Using Ollydbg the same way I have done this in the past. Working on a windows vista OS. I have tested seed recovery of my own daemon and I have no problems.

Thanks

Hi BfoX,

As far as I can tell it's V8.D
I found this in search "a@FlexlmV8_0dLi"

With Ollydbg I can find 6F7330B8
0045A5BA |. C745 F4 B83073>MOV DWORD PTR SS:[EBP-C],6F7330B8

And set
0045A5F3 |. FF15 C4BC4D00 CALL DWORD PTR DS:[4DBCC4]
0045A5F9 |. 83C4 0C ADD ESP,0C

I uploaded the daemon/exe and the shortcut file as a zip to:
redhatjack.com/flex_daemon.zip


Thanks

Could you make a dummy license file template available at your site? Thanks.

Running the exe in Windows XP; it seems confused about about the location of the license file. I get a pop-up dialog and browse to the license file location, get a another dialog saying it is done finding the license file. After that I get a message box saying it can't find a license file with the proper feature and version. The cycle then repeats.

Seems like buggy software. If not for this, the recovery of the seeds should be possible with the usual methods.

Hi tedshred,

That sounds like what I'm getting as well.
It seems like the software is checking the validity of the license
Feature name and expiration date but never checks the 20 key string. I get some type of error about being the first user logged in at windows terminal.

I uploaded the ISO Vipp_CORE if you want to try a full install. I think once the license is validated then it's copied to the install directory /src.

I'll post back if I find anything new.

Thanks
