      STRACE is a socket/SSL tracer that is based on the "detours" utility. The tool has been specificaly designed to generate LOG for Internet Explorer but it can be used with many other applications.

      Using STRACE with Internet Explorer is equivalent to use a (non full) debug build of WININET.DLL to generate a WININET LOG. The STRACE LOG contains clear text HTTP traffic (with socket information) and encrypted/decrypted SSL data.

      From the STRACE LOG, you can "replay" a full navigation scenario using the HTTPREPLAY tool. This can be useful to reproduce a problem or browse web sites offline...
  • Supported Operating System

    Windows 2000, Windows 7, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista, Windows XP

      Supported Operating Systems : Windows 2000 (IE6), Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows 7
      Note : if you use a 64 bits version of Internet Explorer, run STRACE64 from the STRACE install directory
    • To generate STRACE LOG for Internet Explorer, just run STRACE.CMD (in order to generate a "clean" LOG, clear the IE cache before starting navigation). If you want to use another application, use the following command :


      STRACE can also be used with running processes and services. In order to get STRACE working in this scenario, you'll need to inject the STRACE DLL in the appropriate process using INJDLL :

      injdll /p:service_pid /d:STRACE.DLL
