I want to register my controls at user level, kindly guide me how can I achive this with regsvr32.

If its not possible with regsvr32 please tell any alternative way to achive this.

  • regsvr32 does not control the registration process. It only calls DllRegisterServer of the given library, and the library itself performs registration. – user1686 Mar 14 '12 at 12:13

    @grawity, thanks for your reply, but how can I register my dll only for current user so that other user can't use this. – Siddiqui Mar 14 '12 at 12:29

Like this:

regsvr32 /n /i:user name.dll

    Care to explain what this does or how it works @Sune? – Ivo Flipse Mar 27 '12 at 13:11
  • it registers the dll for the current user?! – sune Apr 2 '12 at 13:33

    I meant it rather that it would be helpful if you explained the syntax, what each part means, so others will know which options they might need – Ivo Flipse Apr 2 '12 at 14:01

    That only works if the specified DLL happens to take an argument (specifically named user). It is not a universal solution (especially since few DLLs take arguments to DllInstall at all, let alone that one). It might work for the OP, but it depends on their DLL, and even then, it may require a different argument. – Synetech Sep 19 '12 at 14:34

There is a tool named RegSvrEx out on Code Project which seems to allow you just what you want.

The syntax is:

RegSvrEx [/u] [/c] servername


/u - Unregister server
/c - Register or unregister (if /u is also specified) only for the current user
servername - Full path of the server .exe or .dll

See the comments on the article's page on how to change the code for using with Windows Vista and above.
