The Etch group at UW and Harvard is distributing some program
development and analysis tools based on the Etch Binary
Rewriting Engine for NT/x86 boxes.

The first of these tools is a call graph profiler that helps
programmers understand where time is going in their programs.
The Etch Call Graph Profiler works on Win32 apps built by most
compilers, does not require source, works with multithreaded
programs, understands program and system DLLs, and is designed
to run reasonably fast even if your machine only has an 'average'
configuration. We've used it on serious programs ranging from
Microsoft's SQL server to Lotus Wordpro, and even on Direct Draw
games like Monster Truck Madness.

If you'd like to give our profiler a try, you can download it from:

Part of our motivation for distributing these tools is to get
some feedback about what we've built and what we should be
building. So please give our tools a try, and send mail to with your comments and
