Is there a way to register a dll within an ISX install package? I want to do the equivalent of regsvr32 c:/mydir/mydll.dll

The dll is not being installed as part of the package.

I know I can build a little exe to do this and add that as a cutom action but I'd prefer a built in solution if possible.

The closest method to doing that would be to use a custom action:

1. Create an Exe custom action
2. Set it's Source Location to "File exists on Target computer"
3. Set File Location to [SystemFolder]
4. Set "File name and Command Line" to "Regsvr32.exe c:/mydir/mydll.dll"

This should launch Regsvr32 from the target machine itself.
