Do not have permission to register DLL's

We are using regsvr32.exe to register our own VB created DLL. It works if we are logged on as an administrator.

However we need to be able to register the DLL whilst logged on as a normal user.  How do we give the normal users permission to register DLL's?

At the moment, when we try we get the following error message.

DllRegisterServer in c:\OurDLL\Customer.dll failed.  Return code was: 0x80004005

You will probably have to give them local admin rights (or have your tried power users?), then they would have to use the runas command:

e.g. runas /noprofile /user:<local admin user> cmd
Password:

Then in the cmd window that appears, they will be able to register the dll.

Thanks for that. Unfortunately, I do not think it will help in our case.  

The plan is that we are automatically rolling out software updates, whilst the user is still logged in. The runas command seems to require a manual interventation by an administrator, ie typing in the password.

I have located a bit of freeware called "sanur" which acts as a wrapper for the runas command, and allows a password to be sent as a parameter.

Problem solved!
