    Inventory of .DLLs etc.

    Having laboured through a tedious exercise I've had to do numerous times before, I'm now looking for a utility to do the job for me.

    As many would know, new installations often replace .DLL, .OCX and other shared files indiscrimitately. Now with so many patches around, it's hard to keep track of what "newer versions" need reinstating after a reinstall of a program or a system restore from an older original source. All this can result in the operation of existing programs being messed up and a variety of other problems.

    What I'm after is something that would comb the HD for all such candidate files and produce a report including version numbers, sizes, dates etc. I would also like info on whether a file is self-registering or needs to be registered, and whether it is actually registered. If such a program could scan compressed archives it would be even better of course; and needless to say, better still if it were free.

    Anyone know of something?

    ListDLLs from SysInternals does some of what you want.

    Thanks John. I already have that one, but meantime I found Emsa Register Dll Tool, which comes even closer to my wishlist. Looks pretty good so far, but will only process a single folder at a time I think, rather than whole HD.
