Registering .NET Component

P: n/a
I have written a COM Server in C# and its working perfectly. I am not ready
to deploy to client computers to begin the real testing and am now wondering
how to perform. The part that confuses me is that you can not use regsvr32
to register the COM server so I'm wondering if placing it inside the .NET
library will automatically take care of registering it so non managed code
programs can access it or do I have to manually use the regasm program to
register it on each computer.

And if regasm is what I use, then what is the best method since this program
is not in a windows path and there are different versions of it on most
computers.

Thanks,

glenn

Hi glenn,

RegAsm is the right tool, and you have two options:

a) Deploying the .NET assembly to the GAC and registering it with regasm
from there. The assembly will need to be strong-named.
b) Deploying the assembly elsewhere and specifying the /codebase option when
registering it with RegAsm.

The version corresponding to the version of the Framework your application
targets.

Thanks,

However, I'm still stuck as running regasm from inside another program
doesn't seem to be working and it is not found in windows path so what
version is best to run?

Thanks,

glenn
