Ageing OSR Tools

edited September 10 in NTDEV

I had taken a hiatus from the Kernel world for a few years, and now that I am back I want to use those fav OSR tools I used to use. Unfortunately I find that some of them haven't been updated in a while and fail at times. Example the PoolTag tool fails on Win10 19h1 with "Query SystemInformation FAILED!".

Are there any plans to update these well loved tools?

    No.

    From the now legacy, ancient, discontinued, OSROnline site:

    Thanks Peter! Seems I have to re-learn a lot. What modern utility can I use to check poolTags apart from a debugger?

    Sorry about that. We use the debugger mostly. But, you can also use the WDK utility PoolMon.
