I'm using Windows 8. I'd like to associate the file type DLL to regsvr32, so that I can double click a DLL and register it. The problem is that regsvr32 is not running as administrator. So, what I need is when I double click a DLL it runs regsvr32 as administrator automatically . Any sugestions? Thanks a lot.

IMO this sort of association is not a great idea. – Karan Apr 30 '13 at 13:15
@Karan Why do you think so? I've never had problems with that. – Ricardo Apr 30 '13 at 15:38
I'm no security expert, but somehow enabling regsvr32 to be run as admin automatically and allowing just any DLL to be registered with elevated rights doesn't sound too secure to me. – Karan Apr 30 '13 at 15:44
Maybe that's the reason I can't find a way to do that :) Thanks for your comment – Ricardo Apr 30 '13 at 16:22
