This is where I'm finding it:
Eventually I found the Leaks package. But it's not in its rightful place anymore. The Wayback Machine used to host a viable page with an active download link, but I guess the "good guys" at M$ got to them - no download link on the archived page copies. See here, for example.
Yes, that should be the article. For some reason, I'm not seeing any download link for 'Leaks' on that page (should've been at the top, below 'Level of difficulty', if I'm not mistaken). Either one of my Firefox add-ons or some region screening must be playing tricks.
Would those references on Veign's site to WMI and having WMI Core in Win 98 be relevant?
Or it has nothing to do with GDI?
Would something like this:
work in 9x?
WMI is probably required only for the proper operation of the application. I checked the running processes while it was open and indeed WMI was running along.
I believe the application assumes WORD-sized process IDs (used in NT- based systems), while 9x uses DWORD IDs, reason why they appear as negative numbers (signed integers) when run under 9x. There may be other bugs/issues too.
As for the code at SmartBear: if it were that simple, this would've been a non-issue by now. However, I'll try to write a quick script, see if it yields anything. Don't get your hopes too high!
