was able to discover how to make this work again: - after installation backup the whole folder of sick submitter or icons1.exe, pinger.exe, sickrun.exe and xgetmail.exe - copy the crack version - set the file properties of the four files to read only, this way the program cannot overwrite them to 0 bytes - run the crack exe - incase this 4 files turns to 0 bytes, just replace them from your backup. But is this program still worth it? it pretty old already. any comments? actually dont know yet how to use this.
