How to check for dependancies of a Windows program

Hello
I have a program that does not seem to install on a Windows machine. Is there a way to check libraries or dependencies on a Windows application?
Perhaps I am missing one, but the OS is fully upgraded. Something like LDD in Linux.

Of course, I can ask the app dev but for future reference is there a way?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi Monty,
Give Dependency Walker a (free!) spin:
http://www.dependencywalker.com/

It's been around a long time. Regards, Joe

Update: I hadn't run DW in a while and I just noticed at its website that the last Windows supported is W8. Further research indicates that development has stopped on it and there can be problems with it on W10. I then found Dependencies, which pitches itself as a "modern" Dependency Walker:

I haven't tried it yet. If you do, please post your results here — I'm very curious! Thanks, Joe

Hi Joe

I had looked at Dependency Walker but it's been out of support for a while now and it didn't work for me. I actually downloaded it from old-apps.com
I'll try the GitHub version. Thanks!
