List All .dll .exe And Step Type Files In Sequence

How can I list with their respective path for all the step types, .dll and .exe files used to successfully run a sequence file? We have many sequence files in our sequence file repository. Many of the old sequence files are from Windows XP or before.

Hi TonyJ


You could use the TestStand API to iterate through the steps of your sequence file to pull out the paths of your steps and collate a list for.dll and .exe.  You could also get the dependencies of each step and add those to your list.


I think I have posted how to use the API to get paths in the past I will have a look and link it here.

Can't find the link.  Cobbled this (also attached LV2019 VI) together that kind of shows what I was thinking.  It will search through the Main Group of MainSequence in SequenceFile12.seq and build an array of DLL paths and an array of EXE paths.

You can build a LV application as suggested by Steve which will be comprehensive.


or manually do it by : - Open your sequence and  CTRL + F ( Find) and search for .dll.

This should list all the steps which uses a dll.You can copy them by selecting all the steps and paste it in excel.
