Common Crypter Issues

My crypted file is undetected but once I run it, the Antivirus detects it.

The difference between a Runtime and Scantime Crypter

A Runtime Crypter encrypts the specified file and when executed (ran), it is decrypted in memory. This way antiviruses aren’t able to analyse the file before executed and after executed. A scantime Crypter encrypts the specified file so antiviruses aren’t able to analyse the file only before executed but NOT when executed. So obviously you should find a crypter that is both runtime and scantime FUD (fully undetected)

How come after I crypt my file, it doesn’t work anymore?

There are many factors that can cause this and I won’t name them all, but the most common issue is the fact that the crypter you used doesnt support EOF. That’s why a crypter like CypherX is a perfect choice to rely on because it supports EOF.

The other most common issue is that the crypter your using doesn’t support a certain windows OS or requires a dependency.

Why do I receive “missing OCX” errors when running a crypter?

Usually whats causing this is not having one of these ocx files registered on your computer,
comdl32.ocx  – http://windowsxp.mvps.org/comdlg32.htm
mscomctl.ocx – http://majorgeeks.com/faqshow.php?id=8
(if your still having issues put the ocx’s also in the “sysWOW” and “system” folders if you have them)
heres the basic idea of how to install ocx files,
comdl32.ocx  – http://windowsxp.mvps.org/comdlg32.htm
mscomctl.ocx – http://majorgeeks.com/faqshow.php?id=8
(if your still having issues put the ocx’s also in the “sysWOW” and “system” folders if you have them)

Why am I receiving an “error 9 subscript out of range”?

You are either using a stub that is not compatible with the specified crypter or your using an older crypter with a newer stub, which in this case, the keysplit used in the code of the crypter and stub is usually not the same in this situation.
