Today I had to deal with an issue involving errors for COM components. So I started looking around for tools that would help me with this task. After a few minutes I found COM Explorer 2.0 by 4Developers. The tool looks very nice and does most of what you would like it to do. One thing that this program is lacking is search, and I had to look for a DLL server whose name I wasn’t exactly sure of. I ended up finding a hack to accomplish this, basically I generated an HTML report with all the DLL servers and then searched that HTML report in Internet Explorer. Other than that the pricing for one developer seems a little expensive but the site- and corporation-wide pricing sound like very good deals.
