Dependency Walker#

When trying to find all the libraries the project is loading & the order, add this flag to linker additional options: /verbose:lib

Use dumpbin & dependencywalker to find what libraries/dlls are linked against (MSVCRT/MSVCRTD/LIBCMT/x64 vs x86)

dumpbin.exe /Directives (use to see the runtime library that is linked
dumpbin.exe /HEADERS  (use to see if x86 vs x64 in the machine entry)
 DUMPBIN /LINKERMEMBER[:{1|2}] <libraryname.lib>      (output all the exported symbols in a lib)
