Problem with registration of Java/COM

I have a Java class called ValidateCertificate.  

I am using Java/COM Registration Utility 2.6 and I type in the following command line:

C:\>javareg /register /class:ValidateCertificate /progid:JavaValidateCertificate /typelib:ValidateCertificate.tlb

I get the following error:

"Unable to create the type library for the specified Java class."

Any suggestions what this error means and how to correct the problem?

Have you tried:
C:\>javareg /register /class:ValidateCertificate /progid:JavaValidateCertificate /typelib:ValidateCertificate.class

Btw, I don't think you need to specify /typelib unless you specify /control. Furthermore you shouldn't need to copy the class file yourself. It should be done by the javareg tool.

Hi seckel,

Which package is your Java class in?

Cheers!

Its not in a package.

I compiled the source and moved the class into WINNT/Java/trustlib directory.

Do you know how I can create a type library?

If you use the command with the typelib switch, the typelib will be created by the javareg utility. See the following link for examples and explanations: http://www.tburke.net/info/reskittools/topics/javareg_examples.htm

Thanks for the points, could you please explain the B grade? Was there something in my answers that wasn't correct and/or not satisfactory?
