I am running windows 8.1 and OllyDBG 2.0. When I attach to a process and view the executable modules, I want to open one. However, when I double click on one of the modules, it won't open in the main OllyDBG window, which it should. Has anyone else had a similar issue or have a solution? I run OllyDBG as administrator and I even tried running it in compatibility mode for XP. I can provide more information if it is needed to fully answer my question.

  • Press Alt+L to open the Log window. What does the log say? Dec 28, 2013 at 1:33
  • The log is saying: "Different PE headers in file and in memory (System update is pending?)" Dec 28, 2013 at 2:41
  • Strangely enough though, it works just fine in OllyDBG 1.1 Dec 28, 2013 at 4:48
  • Most probably it is due to antivirus . Are you running Avast ? Also try to use the most recent version of ollydbg, version 2.01 released on september 2013

    Well the error happens due to the fact that certain (overcautious) antivirus hook/modify the system dlls in memory and this causes a mismatch of the dll between disk and memory.
