mstresourceparse Utility

The mstresourceparse tool parses and prints data segments content. The parser's output is used by NVIDIA representatives for debugging and troubleshooting.

Warning

The tool's applicable parsing inputs can be the mstresourcedump outputs (bin file or “human readable” format), or the devlink JSON format output.

Warning

To parse the segments data in the most efficient way, you must use the most suitable ADB file. For the ADB file, please contact NVIDIA Support.
