PE File Editor Tool, DLL Reader, Disassembler, Resource Editor

Yay! PE Explorer saved my bacon to recover some routines and constants from a dll whose source was altered and the old version never saved. That alone was worth the purchase price.

It's one of the most excellent tools I have ever seen for binary header analysis, I have just bought a copy of PE Explorer and WinHex for home as I think they are great compliments to each other.

One of the reasons that I bought PE Explorer was the Disassembler. Good stuff. The other reason is the GUI - it is really useful when trying to get an overview over a given PE file.

View, Edit, and Reverse Engineer EXE and DLL Files

PE Explorer is the most feature-packed program for inspecting the inner workings of your own software, and more importantly, third party Windows applications and libraries for which you do not have source code.

PE Explorer lets you open, view and edit a variety of different 32-bit Windows executable file types (also called PE files) ranging from the common, such as EXE, DLL and ActiveX Controls, to the less familiar types, such as DLL.MUN, SCR (Screensavers), CPL (Control Panel Applets), SYS, MSSTYLES, BPL, DPL and more (including executable files that run on MS Windows Mobile platform).

Your Way for Viewing and Editing PE Files

PE ExplorerPE Explorer gives you the power to look inside these PE binary files, perform static analysis, reveal a lot of information about the function of the executable, and collect as much information about the executable file as possible, without executing it.

PE Explorer leaves you with only minimal work to do in order to get an analysis of a piece of software. Once you have selected the file you wish to examine, PE Explorer will analyze the file and display a summary of the PE header information, and all of the resources contained in the PE file. From here, the tool allows you to explore the specific elements within an executable file.

Besides being an effective Resource Editor, PE Explorer also provides several tools that elevate it to Power Coder status: the API Function Syntax Lookup, Dependency Scanner, Section Editor, UPX Unpacker, and the powerful yet easy-to-use Disassembler. With PE Explorer, you can view and inspect unknown binaries, examine and edit the properties of EXE and DLL files, and correct and repair the internal structures of any PE (portable executable) files with the click of a button. PE Explorer is intended to be used in various scenarios such as software development, forensics practice, reverse engineering, extensive binary security analysis and binary auditing processes.

With PE Explorer, You Can

  • See what's inside an executable and what it does
  • Change and customize the GUI elements of your Windows programs
  • Track down what a program accesses and which DLLs are called
