(About the author)
 
     Now updated with the possiblity to register/unregister typelibs (*.tlb) it can now also handle long filenames, thanks Vlad :-) I got tired of using regsvr32 the old way, so I integrated it to the shell. Makes life easier to register/unregister an .dll or .ocx file with just an click. I can┤t figure out why I have not thought about it before :-))) What you need to do is to create your own .reg file putting in below info using notepad and naming the file to regsvr32.reg Or you can download my already made .reg file

I forgot to mention that you ofcourse also need to run the .reg file to apply the data into the registry :-)

Replace %1 with %L to get long file names support. Now guess how "regtlib -q \"%L\"" and "regtlib -q -u \"%L\"" can be used :-))) HTH, </wqw>
