Object Explorer stand alone
I've got a little problem. We use TestComplete for testing a Microsoft .Net based application. We create projects with test cases on our workstation PCs, merge them into a project suite and run these automated tests every night on a third PC in a branch office in another country.
We use german Windows Vista on our workstation PCs and the nightly tests are going to run on an english Windows XP. And there is our problem. Some object names just differ from english to german version (e.g. btnJa and btnYes and the corresponding WndCaption &Ja and &Yes). If we click on the ja button the tests won't work on english OS. Therefore we do not take name mappings from TestComplete here but the native Microsoft object names. Then we can check the OS language and substitute the native Microsoft object names. This does not work with the TestComplete name mapping.
Long story, short questions:
1. Is there a stand-alone version of the object explorer that we can use on an english OS to determine the correct english object names or does anyone know a comparable tool?
2. Does anyone had the same problem and how did you solve it?

You can get similar results with Spy++ with Visual Studio. And if you can still find it, there use to be an app called Managed Spy that came with the SDK's for Windows, but if I remember right it doesn't come with them anymore.
