I'm fairly new to the RE world, started right around a week and have gotten my hands dirty with some really good stuff on this website. Pardon my naive knowledge.
Currently, I'm trying to reverse a DLL file of a certain EXE. The EXE makes calls to functions of this DLL for looking up certain values which I plan to patch eventually.
How do I go about debugging the DLL while the application is running?
I would like to be able to place a break point in my DLL and get a hit in IDA Pro while the call is made from the application.
Right now, I patch the DLL by simply hoping for it to work, but I'm pretty sure that there exists a much productive method.
I'm using IDA Pro as my flavor of tool. You could suggest me if some other disassembler can help me achieve the same.
Could someone be kind enough to guide me around this task?
