What are you trying to do?

Do you have the source code, that will help you understand the flow.

Mike,

I believe that the requirement is for a tool that documents source code in such a way that it makes more sense.  There are tools available for VB.NET and C#, but I don't know about anything for VC++.NET.

I agree.  In question he mentions 2 exes and some dlls.  If a tool exist that documents the flow of the exe it will show different flos for diffrent data and it will be difficult to document why.

if you have the source code, what you need is an UML reverse-engineering tool, to build a sequence diagram. This kind of software use to be very expensive, like IBM's Rational.
This free product claims to do reverse engineering for c++ souce code:

You can use Visio UML plug-in to reverse engineer source code (if you have the right version), and I believe Jaime might be referring to Rational Rose:

sorry, just returning after some troubles with my internet connection. Yes, I was talking about IBM's Rational Rose and related reverse engineering tools
