How to install the patch

To patch 64-bit DLL use a 64-bit installation of python.


Make sure you have dbghelp.dll and symsrv.dll in the same architecture of the DLL you want to patch. if you're squeamish about using the ones I provided just copy the ones in your SDK folder(s).

See dependencies for other requirements.

1. Making a patched copy

usage: mega.py [-h] [-i INFILE] [-o OUTFILE] [-d]

optional arguments:
  -h, --help  show this help message and exit
  -i INFILE
  -o OUTFILE
  -d          pass DEBUG option to dbghelp (use dbgview)

2. Replacing the original

Simply replace the DLL in system32 folder

or

run as admin:

install.bat [patched-dll]

Make sure there aren't any errors.
