I've created a VB application and I need to Register some ocx's and dll's. I can't use the VB Setup creator so I've created my own. I want to be able to register these files without Regsvr32.exe or somehow get rid of the messages that popup when each file is registered. How can this be done?

Create the following declares per DLL/OCX you want to register. Call all the register functions of each dll when you want to register the dll's. Similar for unregister.

Private Declare Sub DllRegisterServer_AMUITLIB Lib "d:\temp\amuitlib.dll" Alias "DllRegisterServer" ()
Private Declare Sub DllUnregisterServer_AMUITLIB Lib "d:\temp\amuitlib.dll" Alias "DllUnregisterServer" ()

Private Sub Form_Load()
    DllRegisterServer_AMUITLIB
    DllUnregisterServer_AMUITLIB
End Sub

BTW: Buy InstallShield if you can afford it.

Or you can simply use the -s switch with regsvr32.exe and that will make it silent so it won't display anything.
