Hello,
I have created a Dll file using VB.Net Class project. Now I need use it in other programs (e.g. .Net / ColdFusion / MsAscess etc.) on Other PCs.
The problem is, I can not just copy this dll file and call it from these programs; I need to register it. But when I try to register it like say with Regsvr32.exe in WinXP, it gives me an error and doesn't register.
Do I need to make another type of project OR are these .net created dll files can't be registered and consiquently can't be used at all in other programs.

Any help/tip is much appriciated.

The .net DLL does not need to be registed. You can use it in  other .NET application by just adding them as references in other .NET projects

That is an example of using .NET dll in non-dotnet languages like Cold Fusion or C++ or any other

Yes, in .Net I have done that already and have used them in a no. of programs, but I need to use it in other applications as well. For those ones it doesn't work.

So, does it not work at all with other applications/ programs and only with .net programs ? If it works... How ?

I guess there is a tool called RegAsm.Exe (counterpart to regsvr32 for COM)
You can use this to register an assembly ( dll is called so in .NET)

Also you can think of putting your assembly in the GAC (Global Assembly Cache) for access to other applications.

Cheers...
