Let's say you are developping a Windows dll. If you don't specify
ordinals, then the linker is going to sort your functions and then
assign them ordinals starting from some configurable start value, I
believe starting with 100 by default.
So that will result in something like:
So if that's not what we see in the dll, then it means that
algorithm was not used or something interfered with it. The only
explanation I know of is that the user specified ordinals for some of
So then it's up to us to find out which APIs had ordinals assigned to
them which the algorithm I described should be able to do reasonably
well. Only testing it will tell for sure but it could be worth it...
