DLL appears to register but object not found in registry after registration

A rather odd experience. Using the latest PDK (v7.3) from ActiveState, I used perlctrl to build a COM DLL. Perlctrl ran without a hitch. OLEView read the typelib okay. RegSvr32 registered it okay. However ... there's no sign of it in registry, and anything that tries to use it fails. I hunted for the various UIDs using RegEdit and they're just not there.

The code is attached. It's a wrapping of Lingua::ZH::WordSegmenter, but with the encoding changed to utf8 rather than gbk.

What am I doing wrong?

Dear,

How do you have registered the dll ?

Like this : regsvr32 ZHWordSeg.dll

Or : ZHWordSeg.dll /regserver

The only information I could find is that someone who had the same problem had clean all and reinstall active perl.

Best Regards

The only "solution" that I've found was suggested over on news:comp.os.ms-windows.programmer.win32

i am not a PDK user but from experience i can tell you, that you should check the DllRegister exports code and what it internally does, since this is what the regsvr32 calls and this code is creating the registry keys for your com server/proxy, etc,...

You can track the registry for changes with sysinternal tools like regmon or procmon, just to make sure!

Ultimately, I gave up and went back to a previous version that worked and tweaked it.

So close this question with no points awarded.

Thanks for trying,
Bruce.
