Where in the react os repo is the exe loader located?

Post by phoenixfirewingz »

I wanted to see how react loader .exe(PE32/PE32+)’s into memory but can’t find it as I have no clue on the react naming scheme. Can someone link it for me. :twisted:

I think this is what you are looking for: https://github.com/reactos/reactos/tree ... /ntdll/ldr

Hey fellow ReactOS fans, how could the OP and I have figured out the solution to the OP's question ourselves? I already know that the ReactOS project has a place on GitHub. I can easily find https://github.com/reactos. I could figure out how to get to the root of the ReactOS repository's tree by clicking on the "pinned repository" link that leads to https://github.com/reactos/reactos. But once there, I would not have guessed that the loader (ldr) is located in the dll/ntdll subdirectory.

Trying the search strings "site:reactOS.org loader.exe source" and "site:github.com/reactos/reactos loader.exe source" with my usual Internet web search engine yielded no useful results.

The OP and I are not helpless. The ReactOS archipelago of web sites scattered across the Internet is difficult to navigate.

ReactOS is a generally new open-source working framework that takes after the vibes of Windows NT and plans to offer comparative degrees of usefulness and application similarity. Highlighting a wine-based client mode, this framework doesn't utilize any of the Unix design, however is a revise of the NT engineering without any preparation, with its own special FAT32 execution, and totally liberated from legitimate ramifications.

"loader.exe source"
What exactly are you trying to do here?

Well, he/she said what he/she is trying to do: Find the source code of ReactOS' EXE loader. I think he/she either wants to write his/her own OS (or malware but I assume: an OS). I fear the search term "loader.exe source" is NOT the one to get useful results!

What scares me is Jayden1990's answer. Is he/she a bot? Or do there really exist people who write such answers??

And I fear that the folks here looking for that source code not fully appreciate nor understand open source licenses.

Greetings
Peter
