Register COM dll in ASP.NET page?

How do you tell an inline script ASPX page to register a COM dll? I've done this with no problem using codebehind, but I cannot figure out how to register the same DLL using inline code?

<%@ Page Language="vb" %>
<%@ Register TagPrefix="credit" Namespace="Interop.CreditAPICom" Assembly="CreditAPICom" Src="Interop.CreditAPICom.dll" %>

<script runat="server">...

I've tried numerous versions of the above code, but I get a type unknown error when I attempt to run the page. I'm sure I'm just missing one attribute. Any ideas?

    you can use an <%@ Import %> to import a name space, or to import a particular library refrencing a control, you could use something like
    <%@ Register TagPrefix="Whatever" Namespace="Some.Namespace" Assembly="Some.Assembly" %>

    Accepted Solution

    You shouldn't have to include the dll name like you are doing in your tag, just make sure the .dll is in your bin folder.
