This is a very nice link, thank you. Since our solutions run on Win32
anyway, I might convince my manager to let me write such an utility as
is described here ;-)

I am afraid I do not really understand what you mean. What does PE
have to do with this? AFAIK PE is the format into which windows
executable files get compiled? IOW - Will one not be able to do the
same IL modification using mono's diss-assembler and re-assembler?

2 + 2 = 5. A neurotic knows that 2 + 2 = 4, but it makes him nervous."
