Hello!

this topic was previosuly mentioned, but faded away...

So anybody know any good anti-decompile protection solutions?

So far i looked into fxi.net / mql lock, however they seemed not interested once it was established that they might have to analyse the the source code vs their encryption translation and are not even answering my mails anymore! They have a 'lazy' disclaimer on their website shirking them from any hard work if the translation does not work properly.

I also explored some other options, but no success.

I would be grateful for some recommendations or offers.

Thanks

Correction - they finally did get back to me - still a work in progress!

However, as previously mentioned more solutions are still welcomed!

I've used MQLLock, actually still do. Usually if your project doesn't work at all it is a coding error of your own. But MQLLock has been plagued by crashes with a couple of updates where it was quite a hassle to find the cause and update all clients :\

Still, it is an effective way to stop hackers for a while, it is however not 100%, given enough time, a skilled person with a lot of patience could do it.

When you fall you learn, then you get up and you try again until you master it.

Trial is only for 2 weeks, so you're gonna need premium the moment you go any further than testing phases.

hmm, basically, you have two options, that I prefer to combine:

1. get a good coder that can put part of the EA's logic server side (including authentication), part of the logic in a heavily obfuscated DLL, and just the bare necessities in the ex4 file.
2. use MQLLock to obfuscate the code and put most of it in a DLL.

Both work, for my EA's I combine them.

wow Jos, very worrying that they sometimes have crashes while they try and update, potential clients EAs would be disabled during this down time to I would imagine. What was there response time to get things up and running again?

Do you know someone that can do your #1, as in:

1. get a good coder that can put part of the EA's logic server side (including authentication), part of the logic in a heavily obfuscated DLL, and just the bare necessities in the ex4 file.

Thanks

yeah, it actually drops the EA from the chart and then closes MT4 completely...very nasty, but it is supposedly fixed in the latest version. I guess it just stimulates some creativity on the EA side to ensure the EA can deal with a crash. In my latest EA's I added an email notification to the accountholder that notifies him/her of the EA crash shortly after.

As for a coder, I'm one, but I'm way way waay too swamped with 'lucrative' work. You can check mql4.com to find another one though, just click on 'Jobs'. There are a few that could do this, just be sure to have it tested by a second expert before releasing the EA and expect to pay several hundred $$$ or more if you want the job done well. (I'd be >10k for the full package which is why you'd want to use mql4.com hehe...)
