Do I need to restart IIS?

I am working with 2 com object dlls that are located in WINNT/SYSTEM32
directory.
When I need to make changes to the DLLs, I need to do the following:
1. stop IIS
2. unregister and register the 2 COM object, and
3. restart IIS.

Is there any way that I can move the newest COM object DLLs to the
WINNT/SYSTEM32 directory, without having to stop and restart IIS?

Let me know.

If you accessing the COM objects from a webpage (ASP), you need to
restart IIS to deploy a new version.
If you are not accessing the COM objects from a webpage (you did not
specify), IIS should not be involved at all.

FYI - this is a .NET newsgroup - you might be better off asking
questions in a COM or ASP newsgroup.

if you are using Windows Server 2003, you do not have to restart IIS. You
can simply refresh the app pool that the web site is using, assuming you
have a web application that is using the COM objects.

You could also use Enterprise Services, which would allow you to uninstall
and reinstall COM dlls loaded in it without resetting IIS.

I am using Windows 2000 server. Thus, I guess that I will need to still
restart IIS, correct?

Let me know.
