    pidgen.dll is a Product IDentification number GENerator file. It is used in conjunction with the 25-digit Product Key and various computer hardware such as hard drive, mother board, CPU, etc to create a unique, one of a kind number that identifies a specific computer. You can see this PID by clicking Start > right click My Computer > Properties. About half way down on the General tab you will see "registered to:" information, including a long number. That number is the PID. Each time you start your computer a validation scan is done, checking the Product Key and hardware to create the PID. If it matches what was originally recorded after installing XP, you're good to go. Sometimes it doesn't match because someone is using a pirated copy of XP, or maybe certain hardware was changed out. If the computer doesn't pass the validation scan, Microsoft might require a reactivation.

    So to answer your question, there is software available that can tell you what Product Key was used to install XP but not by viewing the pidgen.dll file. And that software will not tell you if the Product Key was valid or stolen.

    Depending on what windows os your using, windows has a convert/burn feature built in. Just insert blank dvd into drive and select create dvd. Follow prompts and your good to go. Vista and 7 have this feature.

    Software like this will show u binary streams, such as assembler code.

    In Java there's software that decompile the classes.

    Use JAVA :)
