Small extension for File Navigator that lets you view EXE, DLL, BPL, OCX and VXD files directly in the FN window or in the Quick View panel.

editor's review



Executable File Viewer is a DLL file that represents an extension for File Navigator. It enables users to view file headers for MS DOS executables and Win32 portable executable files (PE modules) within the file manager. The plugin supports the EXE, DLL, BPL, OCX and VXD formats.

In order to install this extension, you must first move the DLL item to the installed program files of File Navigator, and put it in the "ViewersDoc" directory.

After this step is done, you can run File Navigator, bring up the "Viewers" screen from the "Commands" menu, add the supported file masks, and call Executable File Viewer by writing the DLL file name in the "Command" box.

It is also possible to disable the plugin at any time. From this point on, you can view the header of any selected file, including the exported and imported function names of PE modules.

Some user experience is required to set up Executable File Viewer, but you can just follow the instructions shown in the plain text document. We have not come across any difficulties throughout our evaluation, and the extension did not cause File Navigator to hang, crash or show error notifications. Too bad that Executable File Viewer has not been updated for a long time.
