How do I register an ActiveX DLL on my application server?

And do I have to put an actual DLL on the server or it can be on the client machine?

what's your "application server" doing?

if you register a DLL it should be on the machine you're registering it to, otherwise your application may crash when the connection is broken.

It depends on the application u developing. If it is ASP application, then u need to copy in the server hard disk and register in the server. If it is going to a desktop application, then the dll shd be in the client PC and register it

U can register by

regsvr32 <Path of ur dll>
