Register ActiveX DLL or .NET assembly from the command prompt

Before an ActiveX DLL or a .NET assembly can be used as an extension DLL by SoftCopy, it must be registered as a COM server within the system.

To register an ActiveX DLL from the command prompt, type:

regsvr32 softcopyex.dll

To register a .NET assembly from the command prompt, type:

regasm /codebase softcopyexe.dll

You will get a warning:

RegAsm : warning RA0000 : Registering an unsigned assembly with /codebase can cause your assembly to interfere with other applications that may be installed on the same computer. The /codebase switch is intended to be used only with signed assemblies. Please give your assembly a strong name and re-register it.
This warning can be safely ignored.
