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

Thanks, gonzoMD.

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.
