rereading ken murphy's post on software protection (see message id 133912 of the forum) i was stunned that he had some logic against the creation date of the exe file.

in my opinion, and i have to confess i never took a closer look at it, the creation date is the date the exe was compiled as such at a given time.

well, i was wrong, that is reflected in the modified date.

the creation date is the date the exe is copied onto the disk.

this works only when you unzip a file, using an installer appearantly touches the creation date and sets it to the date it is actually compiled.

i just wanted to share this with you all maybe old news for some of you, maybe i helped some with this.
