    Solved: DLL add-in registration

    Hello, I have downloaded a DLL file from mark007's web site (here). The file in question is the Indenter.dll, download for VBA - not the VBScript version.

    I know this may sound silly, but how do you register this? I'd like to use it, as I've been hoping there was one out there, then I found Mark's site! (Whoohoo!)

    Thanks!

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but he put a demo for registering dlls just below it.

    Sorry, I know it's a long ways down, but you can do it.

    ROFL . . . Good Luck, let me know if you can't get it.

    Zack,

    How about:

    regsvr32.exe [path\file.dll]

    From the commandprompt,

    Edit: Hehe - One scroll down...

    Anthony:

    Gee, thanks Mr. Obvious. I never put 2 and 2 together. (Radio show comedy). Thanks Anthony!!

    Dennis:

    Worked like a charm! Thanks! Out of curiosity, where'd you come up with that one? Is that a common command, and I just don't know bout it? Used in VB, .NET, VBScript? Just trying to learn the ropes!

    All the script does that you didn't notice ( LOL ) is add a couple of registry entries so that:

    regsvr32.exe path

    is called from the right click context menu of a dll.

    BTW, hope you like the indenter, I find it invaluable as I'm not a neat enough coder to do it myself! I used the same code for the indentation on the VBA tags here - I just converted it from VB to PHP. There are a couple of keywords it misses which I think are: Enum and Type but I've never been fussed enough to recompile it. If you notice any others though let me know and I'll add them in.
