You misunderstand the reason for wanting the source. If cfrost provided the source and an object file we'll throw out the objec file completly and compile the source, for the exact reason you mentioned.@anonytmouse: Just because the source is posted, doesn't mean the exe that was compiled uses that same source! I can post a few lines of code, hey! this is myapp, try it out!, but the app really is a program that delets all of your windows dir.
