Your program is great, and I hope you continue to develop it.

Among the programming tools, PE Explorer is a jewel for me. In spite of its small size, no related application, indeed, could reach its overwhelming features. Moreover, its smart interface increases the pleasure to use it.

Gaétan Gagelin

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.

  • Now supports viewing and replacing large (256x256) PNG compressed Vista icons.
The standard Microsoft Windows Vista® icons now include 3 additional formats: 256x256-4bit, 256x256-8bit, and 256x256-32bit. They are PNG compressed and ignored (but not rejected) by Windows XP. Uncompressed versions of the icons will work on both Windows, the PNG compression is used to reduce the icon size and embedded in the ICO file for the 256x256 images only.
