Component Hunter – This is a new component search tool that provides 4 different component searching features. The original Component Tracker has been updated and rolled into this new tool. For Component Tracker, version numbers have been added to the component lists, and you can now double-click on decencies and dependent-on lists to trace component relationships. A new Dependency Hunter replaces the need to use DependencyWalker's static search and an XPe file filter to track down file/component dependencies for an application or DLL. A File Find search has been added that doesn't care about visibility levels and provides repository location information for XPe files without a corresponding component. Finally, Registry Search allows you to search for components based on key, value name, and value.
Note: Component Hunter will not work with the evaluation version of Windows Embedded Studio.
Note2: If you install WES2009, check the Database server location. If the location is [local]\SQLEXPRESS, you must add \SQLEXPRESS to the computer name ComponentHunter shows on startup in order to conenct to the database.
