A Step-by-Step Guide to Registering DLLs via ActiveX/COM Inspector


Could you guide me through the process of registering a DLL using the ActiveX/COM Inspector tool?


Registering a DLL (Dynamic Link Library) is a crucial step in ensuring that the library is properly recognized by the system and can be utilized by applications. The ActiveX/COM Inspector tool simplifies this process. Here’s how you can do it:


Open ActiveX/COM Inspector

: Start by launching the ActiveX/COM Inspector on your computer.


Locate the DLL File

: Within the tool, navigate to the location of the DLL file you wish to register. You can do this by using the ‘File’ menu to browse your system’s directories.


Register the DLL

: Once you’ve found the DLL file, right-click on it and select the ‘Register’ option. This will initiate the registration process.



: After the registration process is complete, you should receive a confirmation message indicating that the DLL has been successfully registered.



: If you encounter any errors during the registration process, ensure that you have administrative rights as these are often required to register DLL files. Additionally, check that the DLL is compatible with your system and is not corrupted.



: To verify that the DLL has been registered, you can use the ‘View Registered COM Objects’ feature within the ActiveX/COM Inspector. This will display a list of all registered objects, including your newly registered DLL.

By following these steps, you should be able to register a DLL file using the ActiveX/COM Inspector tool without any issues. Remember, having the correct permissions and a compatible DLL are key factors in a successful registration process.
