dump the schema using the ldifde tool.
or view it with adsiedit.msc
or with ldp.exe

During the schema update some Attributes/Classes are being added.
If you know which attributes (Your application should have it somewhere documented) are being modified you can search for them in the schema.

the easiest way:
ldifde -f schema.txt -d CN=schema,CN=Configuration,DC=contoso,DC=com -p subtree

this will dump all objects of the schema in a text file
then search for the changed items-> verify the whencreated attribute.

adsiedit.msc is the best way for just checking, its format is much like teh registry editor of a PC.

Download it, install it, then goto start > run > adsiedit.msc

you should then be able to navigate through all the parts of yoru active directory

BE CAREFULL: CHAGES MADE WITH THIS TOOL CAN SEVERLY AFFECT YOUR DOMAIN. DO NOT EDIT UNLESS YOU ARE REALLY SURE WHAT YOU ARE DOING.

What program are you installing that edits the schema?
