Modifying ieframe.dll Windows 8.1

Recommended Posts

Tusticles    21

I tried to change the bmp resources using restorator/reshacker and Internet Explorer won't open anymore, restoring back the original dll will fix it. Any idea how to modify this dll without breaking IE? I want to change the navigation buttons.

Thank you.

Yes because twenty hours is totally enough time for someone who might know what you broke to come along...

Broke? I just changed the navigation buttons(bmp resources) inside dll using reshacker/restorator. In windows 7 was so easy to modify the system files... take ownership -> edit -> replace. Something is different in Win8/8.1.

Well, you were the one to first say you broke it. :)

The way it worked in xp and seven was the dll's are signed.

When you changed a resource in them you actually broke the internal crc signing thus breaking the dll's.

We used to have to run modifype and then change the 3 copies of any singed dll's.

It's not as simple as changing the bmp it's much harder.

A similar thing happens if you try to modify signed drivers. At least those can work for testing purposes because you can disable Driver Signature Enforcement.
