Microsoft DLL help database

Thursday 17 March 2005This is more than 18 years old. Be careful.

This is one of those things I post so that I can find it again later: DLL Help Database. It’s Microsoft’s searchable database of which DLLs shipped with which products. If you build Windows software, and you rely on a non-redistributable Microsoft DLL, this thing helps you figure out which Microsoft products you pre-require. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, you don’t need it.


Unfortunately and maybe unsurprisingly the link does not work anymore.
I would be happy if you could update this page.

Yet, I have not found the current DLL help database, but if I am succesfull I'll post a link here.
