How do I Open a dll file and extract its contents? John

Generally speaking you haven't such an option. What do you really intend to do?

1 solution

Well, if you merely want to open a dll file, simply read it into a byte buffer as a binary file. It's a completely different matter if you want to try and parse it into a meaningful structure. It depends on various factors including but not limited to whether this is a native dll, is it 32 bit or 64 bit, is it a managed dll, is it a mixed-mode dll, is it a resource dll, is it a non-standard dll, etc.
