VB6 Project Dependency Files

I have a VB6 project and I need to list out (to file) the paths and filenames of all references linked to the project; I also need to the file version information of the dependant files.

i.e.,

C:\WINNT\system32\stdole2.tlb#OLE Automation     Version 1.2.3
C:\WINNT\system32\scrrun.dll#Microsoft Scripting Runtime Version 1.2.3
C:\WINNT\system32\msstdfmt.dll#Microsoft Data Formatting Object Library 6.0 (SP4) Version 1.2.3

Can I do this in code or is there a freeware tool that would do this?  

Thanks Ian

You could also try the MS Visual Studio Installer. It will create a package based on your project and lists all the dependancies.

This assumes that all you .dep files are correct of course.

ISC,

The relevant information should be in your projects .VBP file in text format; for instance, a snippet of one of my .VBP project files looks like (in this instance for example, you can see that v8.0 of the CRViewer.dll is required)

Reference=*\G{C4847593-972C-11D0-9567-00A0C9273C2A}#2.2#0#..\..\WINDOWS\System32\CRViewer.dll#Crystal Report Smart Viewer
