How to see which files used by an app?

Hello,

I'm packaging a program I written in VB6 which use Oracle ODBC drivers, and the DAO Compatibility library for instance. Is there a nice utility within VB or Visual Studio that shows the various files needed for an application to work on, say, a fresh-installed Windows 95 computer with no ODBC installed (which is the minimum requirement for my app)?

Additionally you may use some tools (which do not come with vs) like
* Dependencies.exe
* Modules.exe
to see what dll's are used during runtime, but this is rather to trace whenever there are problems. For Oracle, you need to check the oracle documentation about the "minimal" client installation.

OK! Didn't have this one in my previous VS installation. But now I do, seems to work like a charm.
Thanks.
