What follows is an unprotect scheme for version 1.11C of
Borland International's Sidekick. The basic procedure is the
same as that for version 1.1A with just location differences.
So the only credit I can take is for finding the new
locations!


This is (of course), provided only for legal owners of Sidekick!!

Also, make sure you 'DEBUG' a copy NOT the original!


DEBUG SK.COM
-U 801
-E 801
you will then see:
25E5:0801 E8.
90
repeat for 802 and 803:
-E 802
90
-E 803
90
then:
-A 810
OR AL,01

-U 801
you should then see (among other things):
XXXX:801 90 NOP
XXXX:802 90 NOP
XXXX:803 90 NOP

XXXX:810 0C01 OR AL,01
if so:
-W
-Q
if not:
-Q

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


For SKN.COM, SKM.COM and SKC.COM the unprotect is the same
but at the following locations:

SK SKN SKM SKC
--- --- --- ---
801 7DF 76F 7BC
802 7E0 770 7BD
803 7E1 771 7BE
810 7EE 77E 7CB

To unprotect SKC.COM you would 'DEBUG SKC.COM' and then replace
any occurence of '801' with '7BC'; '802' with '7BD' and so on.

GOOD LUCK!

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
