TrID File Identifier / nfo-msinfo32.trid.xml for Microsoft System INFOrmation (*.nfo)
« Last post by jenderek on January 15, 2019, 09:34:54 pm »
Hello trid users,

some days ago i run TrID on some reports (*.nfo) generated by Microsoft
System information tool msinfo32.exe. Such files are described by
xml-utf16le.trid.xml too general as "Generic XML (UTF-16 LE)" with wrong
file name extension ( See output/trid-old.txt).

So i run tridscan on inspected samples to generate nfo-msinfo32.trid.xml.

Microsoft claim to support the open source movement, but apparently they
never published the file format used for NFO reports. So it not clear which
XML constructs always appear like "<MsInfo>". Or other elements seems to
optional or vary with used system language like "<Item>" on English systems
or "<Element>" on german systems.

Luckily i found at least a document on Microsoft servers about the
command-line switches of MSINFO32 tool. So i add that as reference URL.

But there are more annoying items. I tried to gather samples from different
Windows versions with different languages. So i also run msinfo32.exe on
Windows 98. The generated NFO sample on that system do not use the XML based
format, but instead a OLE2 based file format is used on that old system.
But when i try to open that sample on new system a get a message like "the
Windows 98 file format is not supported any more". So i mention this fact
about different incompatible versions inside remark line.

I have tested only a dozen of NFO reports. Maybe for systems with other time
zone settings or other locale setting time expressions like
<CreationUTC>01/05/19 00:35:15</CreationUTC> are different.

With new trid definition all my modern Microsoft System Information files
are now recognized ( see appended output/trid-new.txt). TrID definition,
some examples and output are stored in archive nfo.zip. I hope that the XML
file can be used in future version of triddefs.

With best wishes

TrID File Identifier / update wer.trid.xml for Windows Error Report (*.wer)
« Last post by jenderek on January 11, 2019, 01:44:49 am »
Hello trid users,

some days ago i run TrID on hundreds of Windows Error Reports (*.wer). Many
files are misidentified as "Unknown!" instead "Windows Error Report" by
wer.trid.xml ( See output/trid-old.txt).

So i refine trid definition file by running tridscan on undetected examples.
What has changed. Not Surprisingly on a non english Window system with
programs in non English languages in global string section sentences like
"CLOSE THE PROGRAM" vanish. And also often appearing words like "MICROSOFT",
".EXE" or "WINDOWS" do not occur in all report files.

On Wikipedia page there exist a page about Windows Error Reporting, but
unfortunately the information there gives no relations to generated WER text
files. Because normally user just want to know what is this file type used
for and can i delete such files. So i add link to nirsoft utility AppCrashView,
that is a nice viewer for Windows Error report files and has the opportunity
to delete such WER files by reference URL:

   <RefURL>https://www.nirsoft.net/utils/app_crash_view.html</RefURL>

With new trid definition all such Windows Error Report are now recognized (
see appended output/trid-new.txt). TrID definition and output are stored in
archive wer.zip. I hope that the updated XML file can be used in future
version of triddefs.

With best wishes
