What is portable executable (PE)?..

Answer / shh!!

The file format defining the structure that all executable
files (EXE) and Dynamic Link Libraries (DLL) must use to
allow them to be loaded and executed by Windows. PE is
derived from the Microsoft Common Object File Format
(COFF). The EXE and DLL files created using the .NET
Framework obey the PE/COFF formats and also add additional
header and data sections to the files that are only used by
the CLR. The specification for the PE/COFF file formats is
available at
