Registering DLL's in Remote
Registering DLL's have
always been a nightmare to all the programmers who have to work with remote
webservers. Its even horrible with
servers having customized security settings. Every time the the Server
adminstrator have to be pinged to register / unregister
An easy work around to this problem is to use ASP
pages to register / unregister the dlls.The key to this operation is to
use the RUN method of the WSH WshShell class.
Following is a
simple asp page using run method to register Dlls.
strPageName = "Reg.asp"
if Request.Form("SUBMIT") = "" Then
Response.write "<CENTER><FORM ACTION=""" & strPageName &
Response.write "<INPUT TYPE=TEXT NAME=FILEPATH SIZE=120>Full
Path/Filename to DLL to be registered/un registerd<BR>"
Response.write "<INPUT TYPE=CHECKBOX NAME=ACTIONTYPE CHECKED>Check
to Register; Uncheck to Unregister<BR>"
Response.write "<INPUT TYPE=SUBMIT NAME=SUBMIT
Set objFileSystem =
strPath = objFileSystem.GetSpecialFolder(1) & "\REGSVR32.EXE /s
Set objWshShell =CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
strRun = "CMD /C " & strPath & " /u "
if Request.Form("ACTIONTYPE")="on" then strRun = "CMD /C " &
strReturn = objWshShell.Run(strRun & Request.Form("FILEPATH"), 1,
Set objWshShell = Nothing
Copy the entire script above
including the <% %> script delimiters, and paste it into Notepad and save
it as "Reg.asp" on your server Now the only thing you have to know is the drive
letter, path and name of the DLL.
