    Hey,guys, I'm trying to increase file size of .exe in visual basic. I want to increase it with 5-10MB. Do you have any idea how I can do that?

    Open the file, go to the EOF (end of file) character and start adding bytes there.

    And how exactly can I do that? I'm total noob in programming and just need something to boost the file size with 5-10mb and not change anything. I'm using Visual Basic 2008 Express Edition.

    I dont know VB but in any programming language you should be able to place comments into source code. So take a shitload of random test (like Lorem ipsum), place it there and make it a comment.

    I don't believe in handing out full code to people that don't try because that doesn't help people learn, it makes people lazy. In the future you will need something else. What then?

    If you learn how to program though, you will be able to do anything you like whithout relying on the whims of others.

    There 's a huge amount of videos and tutorials about VB out there. Invest the time and you will make your self and your options better.

    I don't think he has the source code. My guess is that he probably got a trojan and wants to pump the file size so that it can pass as a "legit" file to send to his victim.

    Not to mention that comments are ignored by the compiler.

    You're 50% right. I'm trying to make the file looks legit, but the goal is to make people fill a survey to download the file(keygen). Thanks though, I'll search myself.

    Edit: Managed to increase the size, it was easier than I was expecting. Jazzc, thanks for the tip.
