PeStudio

#1 Post by joby_toss » Sat Aug 28, 2010 5:58 am

PeStudio shows details about applications (*.exe, *.dll, *.cpl, ocx, *.ax, *.sys, ...) without starting them.

Another way to determine if an application is 64bit capable, or to see its dependencies, if it requires .Net and what version etc.

That screenshot is not from PeStudio! Although it is capable to scan itself!
It is from UniversalViewer with FileInfo plug-in.

P.S. they added the necessary info about dependencies on their website so they are cool guys and I thank them for that! Nice!

The links to MSVCP90.DLL is
http://192.168.1.2:8080/tpfc/resources.php
which is certainly wrong.

I noticed the links are wrong but only Andrew can change them.

Version 3.15 looks clean to me now:

I won't push any updates now on this, as 3 is enough in this short time period.

Thanks for reporting this. I have fixed the code responsible for it.

> PeStudio

Doesn't seem to be a program for casual users. There's a lot of internal Windows information I don't recognize and not much in the way of documentation or help. Is anyone using this to test portability?

I am still using UE/File info plugin combo for that testing part of the process and the main reason for that is 'cause I managed to get a working FreeCommander toolbar button for it. I select my tested .exe and hit that button...bum...instant info! :)

Can't do the same currently with PeStudio. I don't know if there is no command line support for file opening string or if something else than ""%ActivSelAsFile%"" parameter must be used for this to work in FC.

It definitely needs a help file.

Edit: mailed them about command line switches. Let's see now...

Later edit: good news, command line support is planned for one of the next versions!

Edit 2011.12.06: bumped by mistake, sorry about that!

PeStudio fails consistently

#12 Post by Ascend4nt » Mon Apr 08, 2013 12:43 am

This is the only program I've run on my O/S (Win 7 x64) that's consistently failed to work. And I've tried like 10 different versions! I also tried different VC++ 2008 runtimes, but it didn't help. I figure there's got to be more people other than me experiencing this problem?! anyway, here's what I get:

Double-clicking the executable I get this:
PEStudioGUI.gif
Running from the command prompt, I get this:
PEStudioCmdLine.gif
I wound up cleaning all VC++ 2008 runtimes and loaded up the newest (at https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/downloa ... x?id=26368), v9.0.30729.6161. still no luck.

What's interesting to me is that there must be some dynamic loading of the DLL going on, as the msvcr90.dll doesn't appear in the Imports section for either PEStudio.exe or peparser.dll, yet it gets loaded nonetheless (I'm checking this all with my 'ProcessFunctions' and 'FileImportExports' programs).

I would suggest the author statically link the program to the C++ runtimes, although at first glance it would appear he already does... :?

I never got this error and I'm also using win7x64.
Try contacting the developer directly, he's very friendly. :)

@joby_toss:
thanks for the compliment! :-)

@Ascend4nt:
Really sorry about this failure.

Actually, I never got this failure. :-(
I always test PeStudio on Windows 7 x64.
Yes, PeStudio is statically linked to msvcr90.

@All:
Thanks for your interest in PeStudio! :-)

Yes, help file is missing. I am thinking about it.
The interface file (PeParser.h) is now part of the ZIP package.

Please continue to sent comments!

Thanks, I missed that email at first. I'll await his response

*edit: hmm, odd - marc ochsenmeier's comment didn't show up when I posted this, but the timestamp says differently? Maybe the post had to be moderator-approved since it was his 1st? Anyway, I'm following up with him via email
