Most software programs need additional files which aren't included in their own download in order to run properly. The manufacturers take it for granted that these extra dll's or ocx's are installed by your operating system; sometimes this isn't the case. Dependency is a small freeware program that will show you the dlls and ocxs that an .exe needs to function, as well as their size.

The download and install was completely uneventful. The user interface is simple to understand: You simply click "open", direct the software to the.exe you want to know about, and click "open" again. The software then will list all dll and ocx files that your .exe file requires.

How does this information help you? If you keep getting illegal operations with a certain program, it's possible that a necessary dll or ocx file isn't on your system. If you can track down which dll or ocx file you need, you may be able to install that file and correct the problem.

This is a terrific little freeware program. Camtech has several freeware programs; if Dependency is any indication, they're well worth a look.
