Winlicense 2.x.x - Bruteforce

Hi all,
does anyone have experience with bruteforcing password protection from Winlicense 2.x.x
i.e. when enabled option: "Encrypt exe using the password hash"

Do you think its possible to brutefroce algo in reasonable time?
we have 48 bits key , but what about speed of algo?

Benchmark yourself something simple like RC2. I guess 48 bit takes order of n-month long BFing anyway.

Even if it's someting like zip cipher: (1<<48)/(50M)/3600/24~2 months
