How To Register Dll, Ole, Oxb, Vxd, Jpg And Other Files

This covers Windows 95 through XP2

Usually this is only needed for installation of OLE and OXB files. I'll use "OLEAUT32.DLL" AS AN EXAMPLE:

In C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEMS There is a file called 'regsvr32.exe'.

It goes like this:

Go to the Start Menu: Run: Type : regsvr32.exe c:\windows\system\oleaut32.dll

Press enter...

This SHOULD generate a message box that says it has been properly registered in the system. Make sure you have 'regsvr32.exe' in your Windows\system. If not Extract it from your Win95 CDROM.

NOTE: An alternative method of registering DLLs is to use Windows Explorer to find the DLL; then, double-click it, in the Open With Box select Regsvr32.exe, and click OK.

This creates a permanent association of all DLLs with Regsvr32.exe. You can easily register other unregistered DLLs by double-clicking them.
