I have a DLL registered on the NT Server. I want to re-register the DLL but their are some process which is accessing that DLL.
Can you tell me, how to find out who is OR which program is accessing that DLL, so that i can kill process/program accessing the DLL and re-register it. I cannot delete the DLL as it is being accessed.

Thanks!!

Try this utility:

http://www.sysinternals.com/ntw2k/freeware/listdlls.shtml

The best thing to do is, at the prompt type

listdlls >dlls.txt

This will dump the listing to a text file so you can search it with Notepad for the dll in question.  Then scroll up to find the name of the program that has it open.

You can highlight the process or program in the top pane, and the bottom pane shows DLLs in use
