I have 3 DLLs associated with a certain application. In order for the application to work it must have the registered DLLs. How do I register the DLLs automatically with InstallShield so the user won't have to do it and how do I put them in a specific directory such as ProgramFiles/WINNT/system32?

I assume you have included your DLL's in a component. You can specify the destination for the component in the Destination field. You can use one of the predefined locations or create your own custom one. If you create a custom one you associate a property with it which you can set using MsiSetProperty().

You can self-register the DLL's by right clicking on the file in the component and selecting properties. You will see a check box to self-register the DLL.

Hope this helps,
