Cracklock is a unique tool that protects you from a particularly vicious polymorphic virus affecting an ever-growing number of shareware programs. This virus, known as the "30th day virus", typically manifests itself 30 days after the installation of the infected software at which point it prevents it from running. Often a warning message accompanies this suspicious behaviour. Cracklock cures your programs using cutting-edge technology that are still unknown to other anti-virus vendors (McAfee, Norton, Sophos, Thunderbyte, F-Proot...).
Software developers have also used it to certify their applications for "Year 2000" compliance. Since then we've improved Cracklock and are proud to announce that it can also help certify your software against the Y10K bug (aka "bug of the year 10000"). Thanks to Cracklock those bugs have all become problems of the past.

Contributing to the translation
The translation tool I once developed (RLGui) is now deprecated. Although it had nice features (for instance it can automatically reuse strings translated for version n of a program to generate translation for version n+1), it required some postprocessing every time a translator submitted translated strings.
Going forward, you can author new translations of Cracklock using any resource file editor available on the net.
I recommend Resource Hacker,
Resource Explorer, or Microsoft Visual Studio.
You can use those tools to edit any file under the
Language subdirectory of Cracklock
CLRESUS.DLL for the English version) then save it under another name
CLRESGE.DLL for German) in the same directory.
After restarting Cracklock Manager, the newly created language will appear under the Language menu.
