Do you need to do this programmatically?

Yeah, programmatically.
WIN32, Visual C++.
I can think of some hard ways to do it, but was wondering if anybody had an easy way.

SInce the Registered DLLs and OCXs are found in the registry, a good approach would be to probably search the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT (which is just one branch of the registry that contains the classids and dll names). If you would like to know how to pharse the registry, let me know. hope this helps.
