Q: How can I quickly see the dependencies of a Management Pack for System Center Operations Manager?

A: Many management packs have dependencies on other management packs. An easy way to check is to download the MPViewer from the MSDN blog of Boris Yanushpolsky.

After you install it, select a management pack, and it will show full information including any dependencies (see screen shot below).
