Because some newer versions of Windows require a slightly different approach to GDI leaks, the author has updated his techniques for those operating systems.

Windows XP: Escape from DLL Hell with Custom Debugging and Instrumentation Tools and Utilities, Part


Building on his article published in the June issue, which demonstrated several ways to get process and DLL-related information from APIs such as PSAPI, NTDLL, and TOOLHELP32, the author presents some unusual ways to get system-oriented info that you can easily integrate in your own toolkit. There are three tools included as samples: LoadLibrarySpy, which monitors an application and detects which DLLs are really loaded; WindowDump, which retrieves the content and a detailed description of any window; and FileUsage, which redirects console-mode applications to tell you which process is using any opened file.
