ObjectLookup Utility

About ObjectLookup

This is the second version of ObjectLookup. The UI has been enhanced a bit with shortcut keys etc. Also the ProgID field now has focus per default.

Objectlookup is a small utility that will give you the classname and executable based on a CLASID or ProgID. It is handy in those situations where you for instance have a Progid, and you want to refer it in you Visual Basic project through 'references', but do nok know where to find the DLL housing the object.

Another use is for those situations where you want to convert a Visual Basic sample utilising COM objects based on Progid to C++ code based on CLSID without using the ProgIDToCLSID() API.

It should be noted that all this information can be obtained manually through the registry editor - but this tool will take the pain out of the process.

The Source Code

The source code for this program are freely available, and it may be altered and used in any way you wish, aslong as the program are not sold for profit. The executable has been compiled with Microsoft Visual C++ v. 6.0 SP3 on Windows2000.

Credits

This program has been implemented with a very nice registry class programmed by Joerg Koenig.
