    4. Relocation Section EditorRelocation Section Editor is a type of reverse engineering software aimed at achieving a specific goal rather than unpacking the entire code. Developers use it to edit or remove the relocation table found in executable files, which is a part of that program that directs code to the appropriate place. When patching software or adding new code to the program, it's important to edit the relocation table and direct the code as required. In some instances, the relocation table can be removed entirely so long as you specify this change in the PE header.9

  5. API Monitor is a software that monitors and displays API calls made by applications and services. Its a powerful tool for seeing how Windows and other applications work or tracking down problems that you have in your own applications
    API Monitor includes individual versions for monitoring both 32-bit and 64-bit applications, with definitions for over 15,000 APIs, 1,800 COM interfaces, and almost 200 DLL files. The latest version supports breakpoints, structural decoding, arrays, unions, and enumerated data types. API Monitor runs on both Windows Desktop and Server and includes a portable version that doesn't require installation.11
