Hello all, I wondered if anyone else had purchased the micosolutions custom math pricing extension. I am hoping by some miracle that someone has access to the backend, as we have based all our prices using their formula and they appear to have gone bust! Which could potentially be a nightmare in the future if the application disappears. Any advice much appreciated.
I also use this module for some important product pricing calculations. I've been checking the website now and then the past few weeks and it's not loading. Sounds worrisome.
It would be nice to at least get access to a non-encrypted version of the module (it uses ion-cube currently) so we could at least try to update or maintain the module ourselves.
Although, normally decompilation of files encrypted with ioncube might be not allowed by the license, in this case where you have a serious problem because the company quit I would suggest two ways you could go about it.
1. Ask the company if they have any contact information or email to send you the unencrypted version.
2. Use a dezender service. There are lots of sites you can google for dezender which will usually allow you to send a test file for removing the encryption. You will receive a partial unencrypted file.
What you get depends on the encryption characteristics. You could get the full version of the code, or you could get a de-obfuscated version which doesn't retain variable names but it will be editable. That's why it's pretty pointless to encrypt extensions with ioncube.
A simple google search shows
As for the legality of this solution, you would have to contact a lawyer
Yeah ive had a nightmare. I recently purchased extra licenses for some new sites and now they've left me in the **bleep**e. Not good.
I found a new extension which i feel is actually a better module with much better support. Its by Itoris called Product Price Formula.
I have the decoded files, however I'm still having trouble making it function.
Anybody willing to debug them then you can have them. Just let me have a copy of the final working example.
Beware of Itoris extension, the module look great but has tax rounding issues if displaying inc tax pricing.
We use the Itoris extension and it works extremely well.
Hello @BRIANHARDING How did you decode code? Can you help us for decoding?
We are also using MICO solution modules and now not getting help of them after upgrade as company disappeared.
It looks like Itoris is shut down now as well? We have used the Itoris version for the last year and it has worked great. However, it does not work for us on Magento 2.4.5 and php 8.1. I checked their site and it says it's not longer being maintained.
I'm thinking about trying this one, which says it's compatible with 2.4.5:
or this one:
Forget what I said in my last post - these modules don't seem to have the same functionality. I'm still looking.
