    This is something i packed myself at around 2011-2012 timeframe - so i would assume molebox 2.
    But none of the unpackers seem to be able to detect the version.

    I don't have the originals data i packed in there anymore.

    Are there signs to look for if it is molebox at all (tho i can't think of anything else from 8-9 years ago)

  3. Hello,

    I am trying to run your tool on the following file:
    {hidden link}

    and I get the following output:
    [i] Loading large file, it might take some time...
    [x] EXCEPTION EOutOfMemory

    OOM Error appears almost immediately and I have 6GB free memory when executing the unpack.

    • Your file is not packed with Molebox. :) In fact, it's 64-bit executable (and there is no 64-bit version of Molebox).

      I will update my unpacker and improve error handling for such unexpected inputs.

      Thanks for reporting it!

  4. I tried to unpack the file, but it didn't seem to be complete.

  5. Hello! Can anyone help me protect myself against such programs? (ew changing source files to molebox)

  6. Hi Kao,

    I was trying to unpack this file:

    {hidden link}

    And I got this error:

    So I figure that it was packed with an older unsupported version of Molebox, or it was packed with something different at all (although that wouldn't have any sense because the program was able to unpack the main .exe file).

  7. Wow, thank you so much, that was really fast :)

    I was searching in my old files and I have another one which presents the same problem, so I would want to share with you, in case it could help to double-check or confirm the next unpacker update will work correctly with these files (in this case the file is even smaller because music and sound files were not packed): {hidden link}

    Hi Kao,I keep getting this.

    [x] Looks like this file is protected with Enigma Protector, not Enigma Virtual Box.
    [x] It is not supported by my unpacker

    How exactly can I extract?

    • You are confusing 2 different tools: Enigma Virtual Box and Enigma Protector.

      My unpacker only supports Enigma Virtual Box. Your file is protected with Enigma Protector. There's nothing my unpacker can do for you...

      You can use Virtual File System Editor to extract all data files. However, it will not unpack main EXE file:

  9. Dear Kao,
    Would you please take a look at Folder protect 2.7.0. Your packer fails at imports from actskin4.ocx

    I get it, its a work in progress. But may be you could improve if you are interested.

    • Could you please upload that file to MEGA or Mediafire and send me the link? Official version of Folder Protect is packed with ASProtect and I don't see actskin4.ocx anywhere..

  10. Dear Kao,

    Here is a direct link from the official website,

    {hidden link}

    It's Molebox, I've checked again. The import that fails is at 0x0498714 CoGetClassObject.

    Regards,

  11. Hello Dear Kao,

    It's nice to know you are interested. The official link is down below,

    {hidden link}

    The problematic import is at 0x00498714 : CoGetClassObject

    Regards,

    • Oh, that's a totally different "Folder Protect"! Why can't authors come up with more original names for their software?

      This one is packed with Molebox. I'll check it when I get some free time.

  12. hi Kao,
    Did you check the folder protect. How do you propose i unpack it properly.

    Regards,
    Your Friend

    • Hi, unpacker is working just fine. It creates main file Folder Protect_unpacked.exe and 2 more files in folder _extracted:

      • InterfaceLayer.dll
      • actskin4.ocx

      Put all 3 files directly in the folder where Folder Protect is installed.

      Then run cmd.exe with administrator rights, navigate to the folder where Folder Protect is installed and run the following command: regsvr32.exe actskin4.ocx. It will register the OCX file and after that unpacked file will work properly.

  13. hi mr. KAO,
    i tried unpack a 2 layer molebox all using your unpacker, it works for 1st layer, but error on 2nd layer. and there's "overlay.bin" tings

    • Which specific link is not working for you? What is the exact error message? Which browser are you using and which antivirus? I checked links from several different locations and they all work fine for me.

      If your country/ISP/company is blocking MEGA.NZ links, there is nothing I can do - you'll just need to find a VPN or proxy that's working for you.

  14. hello I used demoletion v0.65 to try to unzip (MKDOTE.exe v4.0.2) but the error EXCEPTION EOutOfMemory appears.
    the previous version of (MKDOTE.exe v3.3.7) I managed to extract using demolition v0.50
    but the version (MKDOTE.exe v4.0.2) I couldn't try all versions of demoletion and I couldn't

    • For me the unpacker works fine in both VMWare and on a real machine:
      MKDOTE
      If you tell me more about your system, I can try to replicate the problem with out-of-memory error and fix it.

      As for your file, it is packed by both Molebox and Enigma Protector. Some data files are embedded in the Enigma Protector, some data files are in the Molebox.

      There is no automatic unpacker for such things. But you can try using Virtual File System Editor by Extreme Coders, it should be able to extract most of the files.
