Title: Hexecute 3.10 Crash Fix Version (Download Here)
Post by: NightWolve on May. 16, 2012, 11:22:21 PM
While PSPad (http://www.pspad.com) is the greatest freeware hex editor that I know of, it still doesn't do the one simple thing that Hexecute does for finding Japanese text :

Hexecute seems to have been abandoned by its creator, Mike Walston, and is about 10 years old since this release. It used to work well enough for doing quick searches of Japanese text (when you wanna find an offset), but I couldn't open anything in S-JIS/932 mode without it crashing, so given that the source was always included, I did the following:

1) I first had to convert the source code to Visual C++ 2005 Express Edition! (Not so easy, many syntax changes going from the ole VC++ 6.0). BTW, DO NOT upgrade it to VC++ 201X! 2005 is the last version that compiles an EXE that'll work on Win98/ME/NT/2K, that's why I didn't use a newer version!

2) Debugged for a day and managed to fix a couple of crash points manifested by the hex view not being loaded when anything other than the Unicode code page was selected. So, I think I fixed most crashes and a buffer overflow condition, lemme know if not.

3) Commandline opening of a file: if you put a shortcut in the 'Send To' folder and whenever you right click a file and select Send To, it will now open the file successfully.
