Checking VB6 Binaries for "Retain in Memory" and "Unattended Execution"

Recently I needed to inspect a bunch of Visual Basic 6 DLLs (binary) that I [gulp] didn't have the source for. I wanted to see if they were marked in Project Properties when they were compiled as "Retain in Memory" and "Unattended Execution" (Note KBs Q264957 and Q241896) At any rate, a friend pointed me at this COMPLETELY UNSUPPORTED TOOL that you can run from the command-line and it will tell you if your VB6 Binaries are marked appropriately for use in COM+.
