PeStudio Review

Sven Sorensen
Investigate indicators, viruses, imports and resources of EXE files
A review of PeStudio by Sven Sørensen

PeStudio is a portable and free program which is able to examine executable files in depth. It supports both 32-bit and 64-bit EXE files.

To perform an analysis of a particular file, you can drag it from Windows Explorer into the program interface. Once loaded, it will display different bits of information such as the libraries it uses and loads, import and export functions, compatibility and more. It can also be used to grab information from VirusTotal, allowing users to quickly determine whether the file has been flagged by any antivirus applications.

For users and administrators who often have to deal with executables, PeStudio is an excellent tool which provides both details for troubleshooting but also other known information from the web.

PeStudio features and highlights:
  • All libraries that are used by an application
  • All functions that are imported by an application
  • All functions (also anonymous) that are exported by an application
  • All functions that are forwarded to other libraries
  • Obsolete functions that are exported and imported by an application
  • Whether the data execution prevention (dep) windows security mechanism is used
  • Whether the address space layout randomization (aslr) windows security mechanism is used
  • Whether structured exception handling - seh windows security mechanism is used
  • Whether some sections are compressed

PeStudio is licensed as Freeware for Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) operating system / platform from computer utilities without restrictions. PeStudio 8.81 is available to all software users as a free download (Freeware).
