Dependency Walker is a free utility that scans any 32-bit or 64-bit Windows module (exe, dll, ocx, sys, etc.) and builds a hierarchical tree diagram of all dependent modules. For each module found, it lists all the functions that are exported by that module, and which of those functions are actually being called by other modules. Another view displays the minimum set of required files, along with detailed information about each file including a full path to the file, base address, version numbers, machine type, debug information, and more.

Dependency Walker is also very useful for troubleshooting system errors related to loading and executing modules. Dependency Walker detects many common application problems such as missing modules, invalid modules, import/export mismatches, circular dependency errors, mismatched machine types of modules, and module initialization failures.

Dependency Walker runs on Windows 95, 98, Me, NT, 2000, and XP. It can process any 32-bit or 64-bit Windows module, including ones designed for Windows CE. It can be run as graphical application or as a console application. Dependency Walker handles all types of module dependencies, including implicit, explicit (dynamic / runtime), forwarded, delay-loaded, and injected. A detailed help is included.

Dependency Walker is completely free to use. However, you may not profit from the distribution of it, nor may you bundle it with another product.

HTMLDOC - Easy Software

HTMLDOC looks like a very good HTML to PDF (and .PS) conversion tool. It is a bit qwerky but it is free (and source available under GNU Public Licence) so I will not complain too much!

It seems to have some trouble with image links. I have got a few other issues that I hope to get resolved via the tools email list. It would probably work well where you are prepared to tweek the html to allow generation of a good PDF.

As the program can also be driven from the command line and the '.book' file is text based the generation of this file could be automated.

The html documentation is online at 'http://www.easysw.com/htmldoc/htmldoc.html'.

Heavyload is inteded to stress all resources of a PC (like CPU, RAM, harddisk, network, operating system, etc.) in order to test, if it will run reliable under heavy load. This is useful for testing important NT file or database servers before using them productively, or just to check if your new PC might get too hot when used intensively. To stress your PC or server, HeavyLoad writes a large test-file to the temp folder, it allocates physical and virtual memory and it draws patterns in its window.

About these Bookmarks

These bookmarks are of subjects or products I find useful (or think I may in the future). I never link to a site as a pre-condition for them linking to me! As I use Windows I am mainly interested in software for this operating system. Where good free software exists I generally only list the free software (I list some shareware and even some commercial software where it is exceptional).

If you have some completely free software (no adware and without timeouts or major restrictions) which you would like listed then please email me:

  1. The URL (direct to resource's page) - not to the download.
  2. A proposed category (existing one if possible)
  3. A short description
To bypass my SPAM filter the subject should begin "SUGGESTED LINK:".


Creating These Book Mark Pages

This page was automatically created from Windows internet shortcuts (or favorites) created with IE or Netscape (OS/2 WPS URLs can also be imported). You can comment any link or category and just about anything can be changed (links don't even need to be in tables). PPWIZARD, a free tool for Windows, Mac OS X, Unix or OS/2 built these pages using this source code .

All URLs are checked periodically using the my free URL validation tool (for Windows and OS/2). This ensures that very few if any links point to moved pages or return 404 errors etc.

Made with my FREE PPWIZARD program (HTML preprocessor). Create MAINTAINABLE sites using templates. My site contains over 600 pages.
