I was looking for a spcific string in IDA, but there were no hits in the "string view". Now after browsing the disassembly for a while I realize that not only does the string exist, IDA did in fact find this string. It was referenced by assembly code, IDA prints it as a comment next to the assembly, even the location of the string is named with the first characters of the string!
Very annoying! How come it is not listed in the string view, then? How would I go about finding referenced text strings by string?
edit: an example:
and [rsp+18h+var_10], 0 lea rax, aSettextfromsrc ; "settextfromsrc" mov [rsp+18h+var_18], rax mov r9, [rsp+18h+var_1A] ... text "UTF-16LE", 'settextfromsrc',0
maybe bc of the UTF-16LE?
