Live test: Reverse engineering MDE to MDB
MDE was ready, and at agreed time I sent it to iTechMasters. Less than in 30 minutes I got MDB back. You can download and look at all 3 files (867 KB)
Here few comments from Karl Donaubauer
I can confirm that they've done an excellent work. The MDB is completely functional. There are only slight differences to the original file:
- certainly the comments are gone
- certainly the beautiful constant names are replaced by the values
- sometimes loops and other structures are replaced by different versions:Do Loop --> While Wend, Select Case --> If Then etc.
- Public Property Get CurDbC() As DAO.Database--> Public Function CurDbC() As DAO.Database
BTW, now iTechMasters offers a MDE Unlocker, so you can get access to forms design instantly by yourself.
And finally – some good news. Currently iTechMasters working on MDE protector, which helps to make MDE more protected from reverse engineering or decompiling.
