Self Registering DLL's

Jay Schwegler
Last Modified: 2013-12-03
I have an application, which upon startup, registers a required DLL for integration with another product.

The main problem is that a standard windows user does NOT have the correct permissions to self register a DLL, so obviously the operation is failing under restricted accounts.

Even if I pre-register the DLL as an administrator, the DLL does not seem to be registered anymore when logging back on as a user, it seems to un-register itself. Is this behavior expected for self registering DLLs?

How can I get around this problem?
