If you use Wise PS, the tool you need is called "ApplicationWatch".

If the application is complex, it would be best that you get assistance from an experienced user of the application. This will maximise the chances that you will use every feature of the application, and therefore maximise your chances of capturing all required resources.

If the application has several executables, you will need to monitor them all.

Thanks WiseUser

I am using Wise PS.

I read somewhere in the forums that the Application Watch does not Capture everything related to the application. It only capture the files that are accessed when exe is launched and if any of the functionality is left out then the files related to it will also be left out

n the other problem is it will also capture OS files that will be accessed when app is executed.
