See below. Make sense? I never heard of this preferences.dat before.

The eMule user hash isn’t displayed in the GUI, but can be found in the preferences.dat file.

Is there any way to get a screen capture of this hash, if it appears in the eMule program? We've gone down this path before and the hash that Aaron just made up wasn't the right number of characters and he wasn't clear about where that was listed (though we asked him).

Hi Ben,


It looks like my email is working again. Yay!



I just double checked what type of hash Bay is recording. Can you guys start capturing the eMule user hash instead of the KAD hash? Here is what they said,


“It is the eMule user hash. It is not specific to either the

traditional or Kad network, rather it is the client software's own.

It is valuable because it doesn't change from session to session in the application. Unless the user removes the configuration files or completely uninstalls and reinstalls the application, the eMule user hash remains constant.


This is what needs to be recorded.
