As a corollary to the import survey from last time, I decided to go slightly deeper and more up to date by providing some more system32 stats on the current Win 7 release candidate. As there doesn’t seem to be a collective “What’s New in Windows 7” page on MSDN yet, and due to undocumented functions, will probably never be a complete official changeset, I’ve also compiled a list of all modules that have changed exports one in glorious CSS technicolor.
So on with the show:
Modules: 2379 (30% more than Server 2008 SP1)
Exported Functions: 93425
Total Number of Imports: 307544
Modules Exporting DllMain: 96
Ordinal Only exports: 26702
Unsanitized Stdcall exports (Name@Number): 1054
C++ decorated exports: 20440
Unimported Exports: 72749
The 5 biggest importers (both static and delayed):
Shell32.dll 1949 functions ieframe.dll 1508 explorerframe.dll 1332 wmp.dll 1291 mmc.exe 1144
Just static imports:
explorerframe.dll 1232 functions shell32.dll 1199 ieframe.dll 1190 mspaint.exe 1020 mmc.exe 973
The 10 biggest exporters:
mfc42.dll 6400 functions mfc42u.dll 6397 mfc40.dll 5523 mfc40u.dll 5517 dui70.dll 3261 msvcp71.dll 2903 msvcp60.dll 2290 ntoskrnl.exe 2184 ntdll.dll 1989 msvcrt.dll 1396
Most Popular Imports: msvcrt.dll - _initterm (1815 modules) msvcrt.dll - _amsg_exit (1812) msvcrt.dll - _XcptFilter (1808) kernel32.dll - GetTickCount (1775) kernel32.dll - QueryPerformanceCounter (1774) kernel32.dll - GetSystemTimeAsFileTime (1770) kernel32.dll - SetUnhandledExceptionFilter (1767) kernel32.dll - UnhandledExceptionFilter (1767) kernel32.dll - Sleep (1755) kernel32.dll - GetCurrentThreadId (1733)
And perhaps the most “valuable” of the productions, a summary of the changes from Server 2008 SP1 including added/removed exports and added/removed modules with full export lists. I realize a comparison with Vista SP1 would be more apt, but I don’t have access to a copy of that so Server 2008 will have to do. If you’re using IE you’ll have to be patient, the document does take a long time to render, when the status bar indicates “done” it really isn’t, it’s still rendering so give it a minute.
The Access 2000 database I made which contains import, export, and module data for NT4 SP’s 1,3 and 6, 98 SE, Server 2000 SP4, XP SP’s 0,1,2 and 3, Server 2003 SP’s 0 and 2, Server 2008 SP1, and the 7 RC is available for download from the Windows Platform Changes page.
Happy Querying 🙂
