I need to find out which versions of all references (dlls/ocx) are used by my program.
Is there a "nice" way to do that ?
can I also find out which dlls are called by my references ?

I need to provide this as a function when clicking on a button.

Thanks a lot in advance

Dependency Walker is part of several Microsoft products, such as Visual Studio, Visual C++, Visual Basic, Windows 2000/XP/2003 support tools (on the Windows CD), Windows 98/NT/2000/XP/2003 Resource Kits, Platform SDK, and MSDN.  There are also several places on the Microsoft web site that it can be downloaded from for free.  This site was created in order to distribute the latest version of Dependency Walker for testing.
