You mean the language it has been programmed in? I give you no luck at all. If the dll is a debug-version you might be able to (even though I do not know how), but if it is the Release version then you definitely cannot. Everyu language will compile it's dll into a standard dll which has default interfaces. After compilation you cannot get the language it has been programmed in.

Sorry,

You may know that when something goes wrong in your system (and it is a compiled debug version) that a message will popup which asks you if you want to debug it using Visual C++ (if i8nstalled of course). I interpret that in a way that even debug build dll's won't tell you which language it has been built in.

Sorry again.

What I mean is: go to any DLL file in any directory of Windows.  Right click and choose PROPERTIES.
Select second TAB named VERSION.  A window will appear.  On the first column you see ITEM NAME.  The third line is LANGUAGE.  Click there and you will see the language of that DLL.

I mean this.  I need to search DLL's by this language parameter... now imagine doing all the process above manually for hundreds of DLL's... it´s why I need some utility that can do that...

thanks anyway...

Hope it helps....

Sorry but this is the same as look each file property.  It will take so long to do that in thousands of files...
.. :-(

mblatCommented:
Well, in your original posting you didn't mention thousands of files. :-)

Regardless, to do anything with files search, sort, whatever you have to look at each file individually.  There are may be the way to look at this particulal property faster for each file but I don't think one can do it much faster... :-(

May be if you describe your application somebody can help you with better way to achive result that seaching through thousands of DLLs.
