You can permanently register an in-process component on the developer's workstation by compiling
Once again, you may also let Setup and Deployment Wizard create a setup routine for your component
that will automatically register the component when users run the setup routine on their systems.
To register an in-process component from outside the development environment without a setup routine,
you can run a utility called REGSVR32.EXE against the DLL file. REGSVR32.EXE is distributed on Visual
Studio 6.0's installation CDs.
To use REGSVR32 to register an in-process component called, say, SPORT.DLL, you would run it from
a command line as follows:
To unregister your in-process component, you can run REGSVR32.EXE against it with the /u option
in the command line, as in the following example:
Regsvr32 /u sport.dll
If you've installed your component using Setup and Deployment Wizard, you can
uninstall it using the normal Windows application removal procedures.
