View and Register DLL, EXE, and OCX Files

SUMMARY: System administrators can determine which DLL, EXE, and OCX files have been registered via COM with RegDllView.

RegDllView is a portable freeware utility for Windows 98 and up that lets you view and register (Component Object Model) DLL, EXE, and OCX files. For each file the utility displays the number of system, user, and control entries; last registration date and time; .NET version (if applicable); company name; file and product versions; and other information. For each entry RegDllView shows the full class ID, name, program ID, threading model, and other information.

Other features include accessing entries in the registry editor by opening RegEdit; registering, re-registering, and unregistering files; accessing file properties; opening the file's location folder in Explorer; and outputting HTML reports of registered files.

Viewing COM registrations with RegDllView

The utility can be downloaded at the following address, and a x64 version is available. RegDllView comes as a ZIP file - just unpack the file into a new directory and run RegDllView.exe - no installation is necessary. You can even unpack the file onto a USB flash drive for portability.
