My app require one .dll

I have add this dll into files section but
after installation my app dosn't work.

If I do "regsvr32 my.dll" then all Ok.

In the file group set the self register property to yes. This will register the file.

I can see that option, but when I check it, the system warns "Including files which are not self-registering in a group with the self-registering option selected will cause an error in your installation".

Since the .dll I'm using is not a self-registering one (it's not .exe, and the documentation that comes with it says it has to be manually registered with regsvr32), then is there an additional code that I can use? I was using the following in a function:

function InstallSpeech()

LaunchAppAndWait ( "regsvr32 C:\Windows\System\CtrlActiveXdll.dll" , ("") , WAIT );

return 0;


...but that did not work. What should the syntax look like?

I'm using Installshield Pro 5 and the installation should work in 98/ME/NT/2000/XP.

Thanks :-)

LaunchAppAndWait(WINSYSDIR ^ "regsvr32.exe", WINSYSDIR ^ "CtrlActiveXdll.dll", WAIT);

Maybe put the dll in a seperate file group.
And make sure self register is off
If the file is not self-registering.
