How can i list all the installed libraries (ocx, dlls) exactly like delphi does?
Example :  (Project ---> Import type library) There is a list there with all windows libraries.

I'd like to be able to remove some of the libraries.

Is there any code for that ??? Thanks in advance. :)

You can find all typelibs in the registry:


There are a lot more there then Delphi lists. I don't know how Delphi filters them.

Thank you very much Jacco.
Its true Delphi may read from there but there is no info about the class name inside the registry !
Delphi provides:
Name , path and the class name !

Inside the registry you can find name and path but not the class name !

You're right. I don't know how Delphi achieves this. Maybe Delphi opens the DLL and calls some ActiveX method to retrieve classnames when you select the DLL in the ListBox?

Sorry I can't be of any further help.

:) You helped a lot Jacco. You pointed to the registry value that contains the list...
I'll keep this question open for a while, maybe someone will provide further assistance.
