    i know its a lame question:

    what is the sequence of when loading dll's?
    first the current folder, than the %path% or versa?
    when is windows/system looked for dll's?
    i mean if u have 2 dlls with same name which one is gonna be used?

    im suprized that it DOES NOT show dlls i wrote and i call from my apps, not even a helloworld dll, and for vb it shows only the msvb60 library, none of external calls.

    anyway i think good way is try and run the app in clean win95 (first release), see what you're missing, and copy it to exe's folder. thatway i don't have to worry bout overwriting anything in win\sysyem

    Did you try profiling your app. Just opening the .exe does not always show all dll that get loaded in your app. (ie. Dll files that are loaded on demand/when needed like winamp plugins or printing in some app)
