What are the consequenses of making DLL files time and time again from VB,do these new DLL go into the registry automatically?  Or do I have to register them?  What about when I reference them in VB are they then registered in the Registry, my questions are due to the fact I will be 'playing' around with DLL's and do not want my registry to become cluttered with aboselete Dll's, so is there any safe method of removing DLL rather than manually going through the registry using regedit and removing all instances( not to metion faster way)

Your new ActiveX DLLs and EXEs will automatically be added to your registry when you run and compile them, which can lead to a good deal of clutter in your registry as time goes on.

One way of removing unwanted info from the registry is to use REGSVR32.EXE with the /u switch to unregister,

ie

REGSVR32 /u c:\mydll.dll
