Hi,

I need to register an .OCX comp.
How can I do that programatically like I do with regsvr32.exe, I mean, without give full path('\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\
bla\bla\bla\bla', True), just regsvr32 name.ocx.
I hope this comp. knows where set up.
Better if I do not need to use winexec().

regards
Paulo

Look in the Borland\Delphix\Demos\ActiveX\TRegSvr directory...

This one of the ways I do it now which I go the idea from the TRegSvr pas that Epsylon mentioned in his comment.

type
  TRegProc = function : HResult; stdcall;
  TRegAction = (raReg, raUnreg);

var
  LibHandle: THandle;
  RegProc: TRegProc;
  RegAction: TRegAction = raReg;


LibHandle := LoadLibrary(PChar(sFileToRegister));
if LibHandle <> 0 then begin
     try
          @RegProc := GetProcAddress(LibHandle, ProcName[RegAction]);
          if (@RegProc = Nil) or (RegProc <> 0) then
               sMsg := sFileToRegister + ' did not register properly'#13#10;
     finally
          FreeLibrary(LibHandle);
     end;
end
else
     sMsg := sFileCopy + ' did not register properly'#13#10;

Oops I forgot

const
  ProcName: array[TRegAction] of PChar = ('DllRegisterServer', 'DllUnregisterServer');

and
var
  sFileToRegister: string;

and the var sFileCopy should be sFileToRegister and this variable is the file that you are attempting to register. So you need tell the LoadLibrary function the path of the file.
