MD5 in VB(A)

P: n/a
Is it possible to implement MD5 encoding in VB(A)? I've looked
around a lot and can't find a VB implementation of it, nor any
freely distributable DLLs that provide the functionality.

I'd be happy to depend on Windows components to do it, but can't
seem to find any evidence that MD5 functionality exists anywhere in
Windows.

I have freely usable C code for the actual encoding (posted after my
..sig), but don't understand enough C to convert it to VB(A).

Can anyone help with pointers/advice/explanation of how to convert
the code?

You can try this : http://www.frez.co.uk/freecode.htm#rijndael
That's actually AES block encyrption, which is reversible, rather
than MD5 signature generation, but that's useful, too. I've got it
working now. I already had a working VBA version of the wrapper
around the WinCrypt API for data encryption. Perhaps when I'm done I
should put together a sample MDB and post it on my website.

But there is an MD5 implementation on that same page, and it appears
to work just fine and dandy.

There's also what looks like useful sample code for using these
kinds of things in a registration scheme for generating keys (which
is what I'm needing, anyway).

Thanks for posting this -- I'd googled and googled and googled and
never found these.

If they're Phil Fresle's registration modules (CRegistration.cls,
et.al.) then I have used them before and they worked very well.

Thanks for posting a link to this code, you have just saved me about a
month of work trying to code one up myself.

Greatly appreciated
