    Exclamation I need some help viewing a file...

    I have been trying for weeks to open this file. Its a source code to a game. I would really appreciate it if someone would tell me a program to view/edit it with or if anyone will open it for me. Thanks.

    Did a quick virus scan of the zip, nothing detected (norton corporate, latest signatures with heuristic scanning at maximum). The contents are a .dll not source code, which still leaves me wary. I did not unzip it.

    Either way, this is a dll, not source code (.h, .c, .cpp, etc). Dll = dynamic link library, precompiled bit of windows code...Assuming legitimate question, check what you were downloading, you either downloaded the wrong thing or a mod to a game that replaces the original .dll, or perhaps there is something more sinister here...I personally would rather avoid trying it...

    i think you probably needed server.exe, not client.zip. Maybe you should try that one

    nebulus200,

    Watch out!!!, don't trust Norton always. I have written a thread about some (and are many) trojans that Norton do not detect yet. Try and never put your entire trust in NAV, it could be very good for virus sometimes (if its up to date) but not with trojans.

    Cs42886,

    By the way, i have opened the file and it's nothing to worry about, maybe it was just a hoax but take care next time.

    You better learn what a source code is before going any further.

    Bye.
