    registering dll's


    Hello-
    I am running XP Pro, and I have trtied registering anout 8 seperate dll's lately, and none have been successful.
    I always get the error:

    xxxx.dll was loaded, but the DLLRegisterServer entry point was not found. This file can not be registered.

    I am trying to register the dll's in my Command Prompt using
    > regsvr32 xxxxx.dll

    Does any body have any idea what could be causing this?

    Thanks so much-
    Mac

    You can't use regsvr32 if the DLL is not an Active-X DLL. Quite a few DLLs are not active-x DLLs and don't have to be registered. All you have to do is make sure that the DLLs in question are in a place that can be found by your application (usually in the same directory as the application or in a Windows System directory). This is true whether you're using Windows 95, 98, NT, 2000, XP whatever.
