You can use the Windows API for this. There is a good example of this here http://www.freevbcode.com/ShowCode.asp?ID=3779

Lol gdewrell, It's ok.

Imbue -> Yeh, I downloaded that yesterday, before I posted this Topic, but, I really didn't know where to put what I wanted in the code, to be converted to MD5, could you help me?

Also, sorry for low points, I havn't got many left, but I will rise it now a little bit.

Thanks!

Using Windows API for MD5 isn't simple. If you are looking for something easier why not use a free thrid party component? There is a really easy to use one you can get from http://www.esquadro.com.br/md5bas.zip

It has a readme inisde of the zip that should get you started.

Ok, looks like the link I posted above is dead. I'll help you use the other one that you already have downloaded. Inside of that zip go to CryptoAPI\CryptoAPI KCI\CryptKci_Dll then read the file call history.txt for information about installing the DLL.

Now to use it in your VB project add it to the references in the project. Then you have to make an object from it and then call it's method to do MD5.

Dim CryptoAPI As New clsCryptoAPI
Dim result As String

result = CryptoAPI.CreateHash("test", 1) 'MD5
Debug.Print result
