App crashes at peframework


pe_debug just crashes when used. I could track down where it crashes:

Project: peframework
Line: 1432
throw std::exception( "bound import loading not implemented, because not documented and no example" );

Just a recommendation on the side:
    catch( ... )
        CFileSystem::Destroy( fileSystem );

Would be cool if you could extract the reason and print it out to the console (std::excpetion::what).
Right now it just rethrows the exception and makes the app hard-crashing.

I did not expect to hit this problem, wow! Could you provide me with a sample .EXE file that contains this PE section? Because I had trouble finding such an executable on my own.

Thank you for supporting me!

Here you go:
If you need (for whatever reason) the full running version, then you can download it here:

Actually, it is a compiled VB6-App.

Here you go! I have implemented the IMAGE_BOUND_IMPORT_DESCRIPTOR serialization.

Note that I have marked this feature as "experimental". If you find any other application that does not work please report it to me ASAP. The structure of that PE section is undocumented by Microsoft.

Happy reverse engineering! :)
