ldd in windows?
Is there an equivalent tool in windows like ldd in Linux? ldd is the linker dependency thing - for resolving DLL dependencies. Example:
Speaking of spyware, this is disgusting. They didn't know any better (all their friends have it - we had a talk...), but my word, this is disgusting stuff.
You want Dependency Walker (http://www.dependencywalker.com/) for finding the standard DLLs that it references, but I'm not sure if there is an easy way of finding out what COM DLLs an application references.
Right. Dependency Walker will tell you about all of the statically linked DLLs, but there is no way to find out about all of the dynamically linked DLLs (including COM). Depending on how into this project you are, you can search for strings in the executable to make sure there aren't any DLL names/progids in there.
Actually, I believe the current version of Dependency Walker CAN monitor a running process and tell you what DLLs are dynamically loaded.
might be quite a bit offtopic but I'd like to think the best spyware deleter is AdAware.
Thank you guys very much!
If you have Microsoft Visual C++ installed, DEPENDS.EXE is a great dependency walker.
Actually, the version at http://www.dependencywalker.com is an updated and improved version of the depends.exe that ships with VC++.
