Well, the win95 hidden really *is* hidden.  It NEVER shows a window of any kind... you should probably set up the 
configuration with the regular RC5DES CLI, ensure that it's working, and then rename rc5desh.exe to rc5des.exe.  That 
way, you'll be putting the hidden client into a known working configuration.  The other option is to use the GUI client, 
which (should be) much easier to configure/test, and then set it into hidden mode.  I'd pick option two, as you then have 
the guicntrl utility available, which will let you check the client's status, even when it's hidden.

We cracked RC5-56.  We cracked DES.  Can you help us with RC5-64?
