I don’t know how I missed these, but there exists a collection of VC++ powertoys on the GDN site. The full descriptions are found in this document, but I’ve copied them down here as well.
Name – Description

SpCheck – Service Pack Checker will check the origin of many different components on a system
Err – Lookup Error Constants in a number of NT Tables
ProcWait – Waits for 1 or more processes to terminate and inherits their return values. Useful for synchronization scripts
C++ IFilter – C++ IFilter for Indexing Service. Makes searching C++ code extremely fast (usually used in conjunction with a search utility such as ci.exe or srch.exe provided)
Ci – Command-line search tool for Indexing Service (see C++ IFilter)
Srch – Graphical search tool for Indexing Service (see C++ IFilter)

JumpWin – Move an application from 1 monitor to another (when using multimon) at the touch of a key.

Backinfo- Generates a wallpaper with System Data (eg machine name)
KAPIMon – This does not work on XP (will crash the machine). Debugging Framework based on Kernel and User API Hooks.
SmartAny – Never leak a resource again! This template library for generic resource management makes resource management a breeze!
GRETA – This is a great regular expression library that supports full Perl 5 syntax.
Remoted and JumpWin are my personal favorites.
