I am running into a dead end, as the links I found through Microsoft have been removed.  I did find a tool which is for COM only, from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/900699 but I think the previous tool might have more data.

            There should be two applications: MPSReports_x86.exe 32-bit (x86) and MPSReports_x64.exe 64-bit (x64).

Does anyone have a link for the following two tools?

Thanks

To wit, that program was dropped by microsoft in order to comply with the CVAA.

What is CVAA?
21st Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act, which updates federal communications law to increase the access of persons with disabilities to modern communications.

In other words, its input and output wouldn't interface with screen readers properly, so blind people couldn't use it.

The alternatives are listed in that blog post.
