Use Depends.exe, this may be in your \windows\system or \winnt\system32 folder. Or alternatively it ships with .NET and can be found somewhere in the folder tree.

Do a search for this executable and run it, you can then select your exe file and a list of all the dependencies will be shown.

Given a exe file, i need to find out what are all the dlls this exe utilises and what are all the registry entries this exe makes. i need this to be done using VB
