Hi SirReadAlot,

Because you used the /s switch which suppresses the dialog box. Otherwise regsvr32 /u /s C:\Program Files\Taxpoint\TSAAPI.DLL is correct.

open notepad

Paste everything below and save to a file with a .reg extension.  Make sure to choose all files as the type in notepad so that it doesn't save as whatever.reg.txt

Then navigate to that reg file, double click it and from then on out you can right click an .OCX or .DLL and Register/Unregister them anywhere, via the context sensitive menu.




[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\dllfile\shell\Register Server]

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\dllfile\shell\Register Server\command]
@="regsvr32.exe \"%1\""

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\dllfile\shell\Unregister Server]

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\dllfile\shell\Unregister Server\command]
@="regsvr32.exe /u \"%1\""




[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ocxfile\shell\Register Server]

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ocxfile\shell\Register Server\command]
@="regsvr32.exe \"%1\""

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ocxfile\shell\Unregister Server]

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ocxfile\shell\Unregister Server\command]
@="regsvr32.exe /u \"%1\""



[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\exefile\shell\Register Server]

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\exefile\shell\Register Server\command]
@="\"%1\" /REGSERVER"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\exefile\shell\Unregister Server]

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\exefile\shell\Unregister Server\command]
@="\"%1\" /UNREGSERVER"
