Basically it doesn't work.
I have set the files properties to Self Register. What else needs to be done. I am currently using InstallShield 7.02. Is this a known issue? It didn't work with version 7 either. Anyone tried it with 7.03????

thanks,
Jeremy

Jeremy,

Does this register properly using RegSvr32.exe? Does this file contain any COM information?

No it doesn't. It is an out of process com server so it is an executable, not a DLL. To register these they need to be started and shutdown again. I have tried executing them at the end of my installation (I have two of them) but only 1 of them actually starts, the other doesn't.

thanks,
Jeremy
