Hey fellas...I am going to try out the new trial version of Pro and see if I like it.

However, what I would like to know is that if I purchase DBPro, can I save my programs in a way that people won't know it was created with DBPro? Including if they open the EXE in a hex editor and search for Dark Basic?

No Idea, but you could always open the file in a hex editor and replace any 'Dark Basic' with 'MeeksBasic' :p

i just got DBP & yes, there is a way to do what you want.
in the PROJECT PANELS goto the SETTINGS button and you will see a section called something like "VERSION INFO" & an EDIT on the EDIT button & fill-in the rest.

as far as being able to do the hex editor, i havent tried that part of it.

hope this helps.

cb - you could pack the EXE as well, this will result in far less "readable" text within it than a hex editor would otherwise spot. At the end of the day though it's always going to be possible in some way or other to tell it was written in DBPro by the really inquisitive types of people.
