Registering DLLs - Unmanaged and Managed DLLs

P: n/a
I am developing an application in CSharp - windows forms based, which
copies the DLLs both unmanaged and managed DLLs from a shared folder
and will overwrite the existing versions of managed & unmanaged DLLs
into folder where some .NET application and a VB application has been
installed.

To be more clear, i will make some chnages to DLLs and using this
tool(developed in CSharp) i will overwrite the existing version of DLLs
- unmanaged (developed using VB) and managed DLLs for the respective
applications developed.

How are the DLLs to be registerd in case of VB DLLs and .NET dlls using
this new tool.

Can the registry functions be used inside this tool to register the new
verisions of DLLs?

Please can some give some hints/leads so that i can take this as a base
and develope something concreate?

Thanks & Regards
JK

Note that you will not be able to overwrite them if they are in use.

You do not need to register the .net dll.
In the case of the VB dlls you can call regsvr32 to register them. Or you
could use the win32 function to do the same

What about the .NET dll, copying /overwriting the current version with
new version of DLL?

Provided it is not locked by virtual of being in use, knock yourself out.
