Referencing Visual Basic DLL's

I would like to deploy a custom made DLL file on my local network. This file would then be accessed when required by a VB6.0 application/interface which will be installed on 10 or more desktops which have access to the local network making maintance of the DLL simpler. How do I ensure my VB6.0 application can reference the DLL.

You could map a network drive to the computer on which the DLL resides. After that each user can register the DLL with the normal RegSvr32 command:

RegSvr32 N:\SomePath\YourDLL.DLL

I believe you can put dll on the directory that your program resides.

Sorry, I just realised.... you never said whether your DLL was a VB DLL (or an ActiveX DLL). If your DLL is not a VB DLL, my comment is inappropriate. In that case please reject my answer!

if you installing the application on each machine  - what's the problem installing the DLL with the application on each machine ?

other case :
if your dll is a MiddleTeer between the apps and a third component on the server - i recommend MTS.
