Is it possible to change the configuration of IDA Free so that Python may be linked into it to allow Python plugins to be used also? And, does anyone know if the EiNSTeiN ida-decompiler works under IDA Free? I read that ida-decompiler is for versions of IDA "without hex-rays" decompiler. I found reference on the web that IDA Free is "version 5.0" however when started, the IDA Free startup logo says IDA v6.1 at the bottom.
I have spoken to people that have rewritten the DLL export table of plugins to make them work with the IDA Free 5.0. As it runs plugins but the dll import is via ordinal not name and the name ordinal table has been mixed up. You can see this by looking at them in DependencyWalker.
IMHO this goes against the spirt of the free version.
