Yes, but unless you're building GPL programs, you can't legally do it,
for licensing reasons. Search the mailing list if you're tempted to
argue about this. It's been discussed before.

There are many freebie programs out there to do this. You might even
have received one with VS Express, or the Platform SDK. They most
commonly go by names like 'depends' and 'requires'. They are often
command-line tools, but not always.
Another one I know about is an Explorer shell extension called Inspect
Exe, from Silurian Software. They want money for it, though.
