This utility displays the list of all exported functions and their virtual memory addresses for the specified DLL files. You can easily copy the memory address of the desired function, paste it into your debugger, and set a breakpoint for this memory address. When this function is called, the debugger will stop in the beginning of this function.
For example: If you want to break each time that a message box is going to be displayed, simply put breakpoints on the memory addresses of message-box functions: MessageBoxA, MessageBoxExA, and MessageBoxIndirectA (or MessageBoxW, MessageBoxExW, and MessageBoxIndirectW in unicode based applications) When one of the message-box functions is called, your debugger should break in the entry point of that function, and then you can look at call stack and go backward into the code that initiated this API call
In order to translate this utility to other language, follow the instructions below:
- Run DLL Export Viewer with /savelangfile parameter:
- dllexp.exe /savelangfile
- A file named dllexp_lng.ini will be created in the folder of DLL Export Viewer utility.
- Open the created language file in Notepad or in any other text editor.
- Translate all string entries to the desired language. Optionally, you can also add your name and/or a link to your Web site. (TranslatorName and TranslatorURL values) If you add this information, it’ll be used in the ‘About’ window.
- After you finish the translation, Run DLL Export Viewer, and all translated strings will be loaded from the language file.
If you want to run this utility without the translation, simply rename the language file, or move it to another folder.
