I have several assemblies in .NET 2.0 that are set up for COM interop. We are trying to create an installer using InstallShield 2009, but we can't figure out how to get the assemblies registered properly. Does anyone have any ideas?

If it is a self registering DLL, you can right click on the file in the installation designer and make sure the checkbox for 'self register' is checked.  For .Net assemblies, you can set the ".Net Com Interop" property of the component to 'Yes' ('No' is the default).  When this is on registry entries for the COM objects of your .Net assembly will be made at install time.

If your COM interface changes a lot, you might also want to look into the 'COM extract at build' property on the component, which makes Installshield extract updated COM information each time you build.  If you end up self registering the dll's, this property must be set to NO.

Hope this helps.
