Is there an application that can tell you what .dll's and other dependencies a program uses?

Dependency Walker can do this.

Or on a running application, Process Explorer can list the DLLs with CtrlD.

You can also use Dependency Walker to track which DLLs are loaded at runtime dynamically using the Profile menu when and exe is loaded. – heavyd Feb 19 '10 at 18:59
