Wintrc is an instant tracing and profiling tool for Microsoft Windows applications. It captures and records system calls similar to strace on UNIX systems. The name of each API call, its arguments, and its return value along with timing information are printed on stdout.

Wintrc is a useful diagnostic, instructional, and debugging tool. System administrators, diagnosticians and trouble shooters will find it invaluable for solving problems with programs for which the source code is not readily available since they do not need to be recompiled in order to trace them.

This program is freely available without charge and is licenced under the terms of the GNU General Public License.


The program runs on Microsoft windows XP/2000/2003.
