Hi,

I have developed a class library named TestProjCOM using the "Create a COM callable assembly in Visual basic.NET" on the following page.
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/817248

After building the solution I have these files in my /Release directory
TestProjCOM.dll
TestProjCOM.tlb
TestProjCOM.pdb
TestProjCOM.xml

Now I want to use the dll on a Windows 2000 machine. How do I go ahead and register the dll?

Br,
Johan

Hi,

Will it be possible to create the Class library for .NET framework 2 and get it to work under W2K?

Hi,

I have tried registering with regasm.exe in the command prompt. I can reference the .TLB file in Visual Basic 6,
but I get an error when I try to create the object. During regasm it says something about a strong name.
How can I get my .dll to be strong name?

Br,
Johan
