I am using visual c++ 6.0.  How can I make it so my .dll file is copied to another directory right after it is built?  Let's say visual c++ compiles and builds the file mydll.dll and I want it copied to c:\windows\system32 right after it's built.

Yet another - in Project -> Settings -> Post-build you can add
copy $(TargetName) c:\windows\system32\
