All editions of InstallShield Express automatically register any .dll, .exe and .ocx file containing the "OLESelfRegister" string in the version

                    Note: The 1.1 version of InstallShield Express Professional will also check .olb files for the "OLESelfRegister" flag.

                    You can check to see if a third-party .ocx or .dll file contains this resource by opening the .dll or .ocx file using Borland Resource Workshop or
                    MSVC++ and then checking the `Version Information` resource for the following value:

                    VALUE "OLESelfRegister", "\0"

                    To include this resource in your own DLLs, create an extra string value field in the version resource for the .dll/.ocx file. This value should have
                    the name OLESelfRegister. The data for this value is ignored and can be set to "".

                    MSVC++ does not currently allow you to add a new value field to the `Version Information` resource. If you are using MSVC++, you will need to
                    add this value directly to the .RC file for your project. You can use any convenient text editor to edit this file and add OLESelfRegister to the
                    existing values in the .RC file. Make sure you rebuild your .dll/.ocx file after making this change.

                    After you add this string, the version information block will look something like this:

                      /////////////// Begin sample

                      VS_VERSION_INFO VERSIONINFO
                      FILEVERSION 1,0,0,1
                      PRODUCTVERSION 1,0,0,1
                      FILEFLAGSMASK 0x3fL
                      #ifdef _DEBUG
                      FILEFLAGS 0x1L
                      FILEFLAGS 0x0L
                      FILEOS 0x40004L
                      FILETYPE 0x2L
                      FILESUBTYPE 0x0L
                      BLOCK "StringFileInfo"
                      BLOCK "040904b0"
                      VALUE "CompanyName", "InstallShield\0"
                      VALUE "FileDescription", "RESDLL\0"
                      VALUE "FileVersion", "1, 0, 0, 1\0"
                      VALUE "InternalName", "RESDLL\0"
                      VALUE "LegalCopyright", "Copyright _ 1996\0"
                      VALUE "OriginalFilename", "RESDLL.dll\0"
                      VALUE "ProductName", "InstallShield RESDLL\0"
                      VALUE "ProductVersion", "1, 0, 0, 1\0"
                      VALUE "OLESelfRegister","\0"
                      BLOCK "VarFileInfo"
                      VALUE "Translation", 0x409, 1200
                      /////////////// End sample
