Saw this program mentioned in another group (and here a while ago, but only
32bit). MS used to offer it free, but recently pulled it, now it's part of
the MDSN package. If you need to know about an attached USB device, this
is nice.

MS describes it thusly,

"UVCView.exe (USB Video Class descriptor viewer) is a development tool that
allows the user to examine the descriptors on any attached USB device.
UVCView is a variation on USBView, which ships in this Windows Driver Kit
(WDK) as a sample in the USB section. UVCView adds descriptive descriptor
information for multimedia USB Audio and Video Class devices.

UVCView includes one binary component: UVCView.exe. In the Windows Server
2008 WDK, this executable is located in the tools\avstream folder
hierarchy. For documentation, see the USBView sample in
WDKPath\src\usb\usbview.

UVCView binaries are provided for x86-based and x64-based architectures.
UVCView runs on Microsoft Windows 2000, XP, Windows 2003 Server, and
Vista."

I found links for 3 versions by using the Wayback Machine

Put one of the following in the web address block.

x86 version:
http://download.microsoft.com/download/e/b/a/eba1050f-a31d-436b-9281-92cdfeae4b45/UVCView.x86.exe
IA64 version:

AMD64 version:
http://download.microsoft.com/download/e/b/a/eba1050f-a31d-436b-9281-92cdfeae4b45/UVCView.x64.exe

Program is a no-install. And interesting.

Links are meant to be used with the wayback machine (my bad on not making
that clearer)

eg

http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://download.microsoft.com/download/e/b/a/eba1050f-a31d-436b-9281-92cdfeae4b45/UVCView.x86.exe

will get the 32bit version.
