Retrieve the List of Imported Functions

When the program file is loaded, the operating system finds a table of data in the file which contains the list of functions the program is going to use from the DLL. It uses the information to search the DLLs for the addresses of the functions to be patched into the main program.

List of imported functions

RVA - Address of ASCII string containing the DLL name. This address is relative to the Image Base.
Name - Name of the DLL in which the imported functions reside.

RIGHT PANE

RVA - RVA of an array of of 32-bit numbers for PE32, 64-bit for PE32+. The collection of these entries describes all imports from the image to a given DLL.
Hint - Index into the Export Table of the DLL the function resides in.
