I'm looking for a way to sort dlls into three categories: *CLR/.NET *COM *Native/Other I've had a little success so far - the Win32 Portable executable format headers seem to be enough to identify CLR dlls, but not to differentiate between native and COM dlls (unless I'm missing something). Any ideas? Ideally I'm looking for a solution that can be implemented in C++ with COM, rather than a .Net based solution.

I think COM dll have some mandatory exported symbols, you could search in the DLL for COM symbols.
The win32 api should have function to list exported symbols of a dll, ask msdn...
