PE Header Error

Postby droopy » Sat Jan 12, 2013 8:18 pm


I am trying to protect a file using enigma, but it says "PE header error" during the protect compilation process, and file is not created. I also use enigma virtualbox protector to put the .exe inside that also, but same error in Enigma engine.
Strange is that i could execute it normally perfect both on windows7. the normal .exe original, and the boxed enigma file.

Any ideas? Thanks.

Hi droopy, no ideas yet. Probably, file has some non standard structure or values in the headers.
Or, this file is x64 bit executable, but you are using x86 version of protection.

Please send us non packed sample at and I will let you know what is wrong there.
