How do I find the files a program uses?

Jacen47 December 2, 2010

I have a problem with a program in Windows and I need to delete one of its file but can not find it anywhere. Is there a way or program that will allow me to track what files a program uses?

      It's a program I designed myself, don't know when I will release it. My younger brother messed with it and now I have no idea what he did so I need and every time I try to access it I get an error saying a file is stopping it without saying what the file is.

      I have no idea what the file is, I need to find it and don't know where to start looking for it.

      This is why I need a way to track what files it uses.

      Also, with the hidden files, I have a program that auto hides or un-hides them.

        Generally, a file a executable uses is in its directory. If you coded it you should now where all dll are, etc. To answer your question, The closest thing I can think of is Process Explorer from Sysinternals.

        About all I can say is, hope you had a backup of the program.
