Due to my forthcoming move to Switzerland, I haven’t had much time to post anything new here for quite some time. Hopefully, this will change soon after I am set up in my new location. In the meanwhile, I would like to share several tables presenting the differences in the export table symbols and native + graphical System Call Interface, found between a fully patched Windows 7 64-bit platform and the recently released Windows 8 Developer Preview. Since only x64 binaries are currently available to me, the tables are only based on this one architecture; I will soon supplement the set with 32-bit comparisons (as long as there are any changes between those two).
An example table (Windows 7 vs Windows 8 executive services) is presented below:
The list of files which have already been processed and uploaded is as follows:
Plus the two system service providers:
Aaaand… that’s about it, have fun! :)
