transparent dll ?
Posted on 2004-11-01
At work we have a simple program that gets the handle to my running App( photoshop for testing), and then I manipulate the title bar, icon, etc (this lets us know visually if someone has installed their own ( cracked) version). but they have to run this externally, so it doesn't really work yet.
I also keep track of how often users access the app by replaceing the photoshop.exe with my own, and then having my exe do the tracking. When my exe is finished it calls to the real photoshop.exe and passes all command line args.
Now I want to combine them into a dll if it is possible.
I want to create my own dll with the name of one of the photoshop dlls. and then have my dll load the true photoshop dll .
so basically photoshop will call myTransparent.dll and myTransparent.dll will call renamed.dll passing the functions to photoshop.
dependency walker showed that one of the dll's only has one exported func. So that is the one I want to use.
Does this sound possible?
