You usually do not register an application, you register a dll.

Applications need to be registered only when they have been designed to be used by other applications, which is almost the equivalent as a dll. An example of this is Excel (or Word or any Office application). Although Excel is first an application, it can be controlled by other applications through COM/ActiveX/OLE. For that to work, it needs to be registered in the registry.
