I know that you can put C++ ISAPI dll's on any page, may it be ASP or just plain HTML.  C++ ISAPI dlls work close to the same as ASP files normally, but when used to send lets say image data, it can be used to load the image.

<img src="http://domain.com/dllname.dll?Image#1>

Is a sample use of a C++ ISAPI dll that returns images rather than HTML code.

Asp uses its own special objects to link in outside objects. The server object method is Creatobject("<insert object here>"). This is the only way include dll's in asp scripts. This is the procedure for including ActiveX DLL created in VB. My question is if and how can regular DLL's be included in asp scripts.

Very simple answer: You cannot.

You can create a simple ActixeX-dll (VB or ATL) that calls into your dll. That is perfectly legal.

An ISAPI-dll has nothing to do with asp-scripts.
