Hi

Is there a way to see what is inside a dll? similar to the way one can look through the ascii of a header?

You can open it with a HEX Editor. Not much to see:

Hi LuckyLucks,

a very basic tool to find details about DLLs is the command line tool DUMPBIN (i.e. shipped with Visual Studio), another tool I would suggest to try is FileAlyzer (which can be helpful in other cases too): https://www.safer-networking.org/products/filealyzer/

Hope that helps,

ZOPPO
