How to know what's in a DLL file?

chamlingchamling Posts: 35Member
The situation is like this:-
A friend of mine has sent me some DLL files to use in my VB projects. But the problem is he hasn't told me what functions are in those DLLs. Now I'm looking for a way (a software tool) to view what's contained in a DLL file like the names of the functions exported by the DLL. I use VB6.

Is there any tool which can accomplish this task? Or any information about how we can view the contents of a DLL?

Please, help me.

Regards,
Bijay

    If they were compiled in VB, then you can register them and examine them in the Object Browser.

    If they're "regular" win32 DLLs, then you'll need to use a different tool. I forget what it's called.

    I think the DLL is not compiled in VB. And when I try to put a reference to it in VB, an error message saying "Can't add a reference to the specified file."

    Can, you please remember the name of the tool so that I can get it.
