    Depends on what the COM objects are for. If it's possible to run them under Win 9x/NT/2000 Workstation then just copy them into the System32 (or whatever Win9x equivalant is) directory and register them with regsvr32.

    Command prompt > regsvr32 <dll name>

    It should return whether the registration was successful or not.

    Hello dhtmlgod,

    I am only not clear on onething..
    that is.. what basically does COM objects do ?

    and one more and nice way to register COMs are :

    regsvr32.exe -u name_dll.dll

    Well, that is exactly the same as defined before.. may be I am wrong but that is the way I just typed in the URL for the Windows XP..

    Omair, I believe you are wrong in your syntax. U is for uninstall I believe, and it's a slash.

    I've used COM objects with PWS. They don't even have to be in System32, just put them in a folder and then register them from there.

    Good luck with your COM. 'Till next time..

    They don't have to be in the System32 directory but by putting them in System32 you save the headache of possibly installing multiple versions of the dll's in different directories and causing no end of problems.
