Hi,

Can you register sqldmo.dll (regsrv32 sqldmo.dll) without any issues when people are still using a sql server database on the server?

I can't see a reason why not but it's worth testing on a development box first.

Well you could unregister it and see if it gave you an error, which would be bad.  Or you can search the registry.  I'm sure there are easier ways, but if you search for sqldmo.dll and it comes up under the hkey_classes_root hive then it's registered.

Registering it again won't hurt, unless you register an older version or from a different location.
