problem with MadDisAsm

Hello!
I have a some questions (sorry for my english).

I have this asm code:
Code: Select all
include 'INCLUDE\win32ax.inc'
.data
Serial db 'Some program',0
_MsgCaption db 'Disasm this',0
.code
start:
push 0
push Serial
push _MsgCaption
push 0
call MessageBox
push 0
call ExitProcess
retn
.end start
and have this compiled application:
http://rapidshare.com/files/4496667/HELLO.EXE.html

After disassembling (with MadDisAsm) a have this code:
Code: Select all
0011fbfc   push    0
0011fbfe   push    $401000
0011fc03   push    $40100d
0011fc08   push    0
0011fc0a   call    +$1069 ($120c78)
0011fc0f   push    0
0011fc11   call    +$1044 ($120c5a)
0011fc16   ret


Can you transfer +$1069 ($120c78) in MessageBox?

What does madDisAsm do if you ask it to disassemble "$120c78" for you?

How to dissasm this string via maddissasm?

That's not what I meant. I want to know what $120c78 looks like. So I can understand why madDisAsm doesn't translate it to MessageBox. Normally it should do that.

If you don't answer my question, there's not much else I can do for you. I need to know what code is at $120c78.

Function MessageBoxA is (on data PETools) to the address 00003084. Though, maybe, I do not understand a question, explain more precisely.

PS. Instead of you could make a small demo - example disassembling an exe-file?

madDisAsm is not meant to disassemble a file from harddisk. It is meant to do in memory disassembling of loaded modules. There's an important difference: Loaded modules are made up by the OS loader. Files on disk are stored in a rather raw format and look different than loaded modules. If you want to disassemble a file from harddisk then madDisAsm is probably not really what you need.

Then you could not create a small example use MadDisAsm?

Example for what? Disassembling a file from harddisk? As I said, that's not what madDisAsm is meant for.

P.S: You could use LoadLibraryEx(DONT_RESOLVE_DLL_REFERENCES). Maybe then madDisAsm works better for you. I've not tested that, though.

Ok, whether you can create those an example of use madDisAsm. (it is simple an example for what can it is required madDisAsm)

Code: Select all
var disAsm : string;
begin
  ParseFunction(GetProcAddress(GetModuleHandle('kernel32.dll'), 'CreateFileA'), disAsm);

This should give you something like this:

And it is possible also an example for ParseCode?

Just replace ParseFunction with ParseCode in the example above... :)

Also let last question a little not in a theme. Whether it is possible to take from a file text lines (for example parameters)?
