HowTo crack a locked VBA project in Word

I installed a fax application that added a VBA project in MS-Word 2000. When I double-click on this project, I am prompted for a password. How can I can crack it in order to view the macros in this project ?

Hi normbody,

The sample code in this article can help you determine if the project is simply locked for viewing or if something else happened:

you need to provide the correct password for viewing it.

You can make the password prompt appear, by opening the template in Word, via File/Open (set Files of type to Document Templates, insteadof having it loaded through Tools/Add-Ins & Templates.

If it ask for a password is easy to crack, but if it says something like:" This project cannot be show".... forget it.

With the method I described, and with the feedback from normbody:

normbody is asked to provide a password now.

So, if we have a window to enter password, we need a little tool called softice (Hope still on the net).
If you haven't. Send me the file (doc or xls project, is the same protection) and i will try.

So, you will use softice but accept answer by calacuccia?
Calacuccia, nothing against you!
Hope you know how to get it or at least, which function and register to trap and read.
Cheers

Richie, I've setup an other question for you. Please give me a comment there, and I'll give your points too.

By studying the macros, I realised that it will not help me to get access to them.

ThAnks, normbody.

I suppose you graded my comment because I helped you to get a password prompt, as a first step towards the solution of this problem.
