ConvertLIT not working anymore with latest MS Reader?

Hi,

I have just purchased an e-book in Microsoft LIT format. -- Using the latest version of Microsoft Reader for Windows (V2.1.1) -- When I run ReaderKeyRecoveryTool.exe from the ConvertLIT package to retrieve the DRM5 keys, it aborts with the message "Invalid hook.dll". *bummer*

And without the keys, Clit obviously won't work:

DECRYPTION FAILED - No keys available for this title.
Did Microsoft close this loophole after all? I hope someone here can help me out!

Use the older version of Convert Lit (v1.5) to transform the e-book into non-DRM5 LIT. Than use CLIT v1.8 to extract its content.

CLIT v1.5 uses a different method of hooking into Microsoft Reader, and it still works with the latest Reader version. You can also use CLIT v1.5 to extract the content; however, CLIT v1.8 fixes a few output bugs and should therefore be used.

Hope that helps.

I also have 2.1.1 and in September of 2006, I purchased an ebook from Simon & Schuster. I had no problem using ConvertLIT at all. Nore did I have have a problem with the ReaderKeyRecoveryTool. And I was/am usingConvertLIT 1.8.

Aha, that works for me. Now I can read them on my 505! I get the error with Clit1.8 but the work-around fixes it.
