Hey guys and gals, i'm new to programming and would like to start learning a few things so I think I have come to the right place!
I have a project I am working on and need a few direction pointers,
first off i have installed IDA pro free on my computer and have been able to disassemble my exe file and am slowly going through the code using the debugger and think I have found the areas I wish to modify the code a bit to get rid of a memory check,
my first question is this, I thought I would be able to change the coding in the IDA software but it seems not. Where do i go from here? do I output a .asm file and edit it there?
The second question falls directly on the first, If i have an .asm file and modify it what do I use to compile it back to an exe file?
I thought at first I could do all of this in IDA but maybe not in the free software? Sorry for the newb questions, but I really want to learn this stuff and have found alot of options searching google but some seem redundant, and I wish to have as little steps possible and dont want to install programs I dont need.
Thanks in advance.
