Windows 7 RC1 Binaries

April 25th, 2009

As everyone probably already knows, the Windows 7 release candidate was leaked to the interwebs (build 7100). Because I’m an Australian and our technology infrastructure is 5 years behind the rest of the western world I can’t grab the builds straight away due to caps on internet usage and whatnot.

Thanks to maclone though I don’t have to. He was kind enough to rip the binaries I was interested in from the x64 build and send them to me. I figured they might be of use to other people too (there’s quite a few changes you’ll need to be aware of if you’re doing heavy API hooking like I am) so I’ve mirrored them to a public link. All credits to maclone for actually pulling these out for me.


Included is both the x86 and x64 versions of Kernel32.dll, Ntdll.dll, User32.dll, and KernelBase.dll (new in Windows 7 — along with a handful of other Kernel32 sub-binaries which I did not request).

Anyway, this is just a quick post so people can avoid downloading the entire OS unnecessarily if they’re like me and just need a handful of DLLs.

A more interesting post should be incoming today or tomorrow where I’ll be posting usermode rootkit code.
