I am just reverse-engineering an application I made for fun but since it doesn't have a menu. How can I add one?

I tried using IDA pro but no hope, same with OllyDbg.

If exe supports plugins or uses dll - you can

  • use plugin functionality
  • or make proxy-dll with required functionality.

or, find a free space in the executable and write a patch that adds a menu to your application.

useful WinAPI functions: CreateMenu, AppendMenu, InsertMenuItem

to Author,

here we discuss reverse engineering, not programming or hacking

  • Can you write down the code for the patch. Thanks!
