    Best way to inject a DLL?

    Hello,

    I make little cheats for games like Half-Life & i'm wondering what the best way to could inject a dll into the process would be. I'm currently doing it by opening the process with OpenProcess, I allocate space for it... then i write it to process memory with WriteProcessMemory & Create the threading. Additional info can be found at MSDN http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de..._functions.asp

    Thanks for your time & i look forward to posting here as i learn to code

    Well probably the easiest way is using CreateRemoteThread(). This only works on newer windows versions though. Also, the process needs to already be running for CreateRemoteThread() to work.

    Of course there's always the popular SetWindowsHookEx() function as well. This is helpful when you want to load your DLL into multiple processes, but it can also be used for just a single process.

    Your method of injecting DLLs works as well
