Hi, I'm using vs205, .net 2 for a windows application.  Someone showed me a tool from VS2005, "Analyzer".  This tool can analyze a dll's dependency and lists all the dll that it needs.  I can't remember where to start this toll.  Can someone tell me where is this tool and how to start it?  Thanks.

    think you need Microsoft Visual Studio Team System. This package has vs2005 professional and a lot of other tools (like analyzer).

    I have used this Analyzer on my pc.  It's already there.  I have the developer version.  I don't think I need to download for it. Thanks.

    Sorry, not Anaylzer.  It's call "Dependency" tool or something like that.  It lists the dll that a dll or exe needs to run.  Anyone knows where I can find this on my PC?  I think it comes with VS 2005 becuase I ran it once on my pc.  Thanks.

    The framework SDK has a sample called ADepends. It's in
    "Tool Developers Guide\Samples\adepends"
    under the SDK directory.

    .NET programming tool (ADepends.exe) for displaying all assemblies upon which a particular assembly is dependent.
