ariane and rk knot
« on: June 22, 2017, 02:39:14 AM »
Could someone here review Ariane and RKnot (http://charles.hamel.free.fr/knots-and-cordages/HOCHET_TUTS.html) for us Mac users that can't just download and try them out?   :'(

Preferably with lots of pictures.   :D

Well - I used Firefox with downthemall extension and the only pictures I got was for a knotting program guide, nothing of the knots itself. Maybe you have to have membership or something to get what you want.
I'm aiming for knots that is secure, AND that is easy to untie.

ARIANE and RKNOT : NEW LINKS
are links to pages http://charles.hamel.free.fr/ARIANE-LATEST-VERSION-V3.1.4.23/index.html and http://charles.hamel.free.fr/RKnot-BUILDER-V3.0.1.21/index.html that have the executables.  Pictures would be something you generate by using the program...?

exe-files are no good to me either. I use Slackware Linux.

The executables (at lest the RKnot Builder V3.0.1.21.exe) is a self-extracting 7z archive, containing the following files:
Code: [Select]
RKnot Builder.resources.dll
RKnot Builder.resources.dll
RKnot Builder.resources.dll
RKnot Builder.resources.dll
RKnot Builder.resources.dll
RKnot Builder.resources.dll
RKnot Builder.resources.dll

Registering-RKB-V-2 Jan-11 .pdf
REGULAR  KNOTS BUILDER-V3-11Jan.pdf
RKBuilder-Trucs-et-Astuces-Utilisateur-V3-11jan.pdf
RKnot Builder Registering-EN.pdf
RKnot Builder Registering-FR.pdf
RKnot Builder V3.pdf
RKnot Builder-EN.pdf
RKnot Builder-FR.pdf
RKnot Builder.exe
FonctionDiversC.dll

That's it there is just no images there.

7z is also capable to unpack some other exefiles that is not ment to be extracted, so the exe file RKnot Builder.exe does contains the following files that may be possible to extract:
Code: [Select]
.rsrc
GROUP_ICON
32512
ICON
2.ico
version.txt
.text
.sdata
.reloc

No images at all. That doesn't mean that there isn't images stored inside the exe file somehow, but at leat it cannot be extracted, or is protected somehow to be extracted. I have never run that particular program, so the image (if graphic and not a real photograph) may be assembled by a bounch of standard win-elements to make it look like an image. 

If the images is that important, I suggest you run the program on your computer (with guest rights) and then take screenshot of it.

You kind of need something Windows-like to be able to do that.
