RegServer 1.0 - free
Last updated: 11/22/99, v1.0 (Initial Release)
Though it isn't a task you usually would perform via ASP (for remote administration it is cool anyway), component
registration is important nowadays: much functionality can be added to your Web site using components. To ease installation,
I have created a small maintenance component that mimics the regsvr32 utility in that it allows to register and
The RegServer component works in all Automation enviroments (ASP and WSH, for example) and it also comes with a
type library included, so you can even easily call it from within C++ programs. It is apartment threaded (for those
who want to know the most intimate details...)
The first thing in a component's life is to register it (before you can use it). To complete this task, all you have
to do is to call the Register method. It takes the component's path as parameter, and returns
a boolean value for the return value. Detailed errors are raised when the registration fails.
Const fDll2Register = "d:\Daten\Projekte\aspregsvr\debug\aspregsvr.dll"
On Error Resume Next
Set xObj = CreateObject("AlphaSierraPapa.AspRegSvr")
retval = xObj.Register(fDll2Register)
If Err.Number <> 0 Then
Response.Write Err.Description & "<br>Error Number: " & Err.Number
Response.Write "Successfully registered " & fDll2Register
There is only one additional method for the RegServer component: Unregister. It does what the name implies,
and it takes the same parameter:
Note: When using the RegServer component in ASP pages, ensure that the user has sufficient rights to
write to the Registry!
Installation and Download
Before using the component you have to register it using the regsvr32 utility:

The most current version number of the component is 1.0. It is compiled with Visual C++ 6.0 SP3 using ATL.
