But aside from the SxS issue, Vista and 7 use ASLR by default and trying to take addresses from system dlls such as Kernel32.dll in your process and applying them to another process is not guaranteed to work at all.


Use Module32First/Module32Next to find the dll in the target process, then do one of the following:

1. Use LoadLibrary to load the target dll into your own process and call GetProcAddress, subtract the local base address and apply the remote one.

Hackish, but it has worked for me.

2. Dump dll from remote process and navigate exports directory to locate API in remote process. More complicated but accurate.
