I'm working on COM, but i'm rookie. I want to know some basic concepts about it.

What is the difference between registering the dll and deploying the dll.

Please explain with some screen shots.

If there is any article please let me know. I've searched a lot with snap shots and its functions, but i could not able to find it.

Deploying the dll com in dcomcnfg needs to be explained as well with snap shots.

Thanks in advance.

Deployment = moving something from one place to another. Registering the DLL is registering the DLL in the system using with regsam or regsvr32 so that the system can find the component. Why on earth would you need screen shots for that?

Technically thinking, i want to know behind the screen operations,
What is happening while deploying and while registering?

It depends on conception you developing a library. For a COM in CLR you can use deploying (regasm) with [[ComVisible(), ClassInterface()] parameters in your source code and for others - registering (regsvr32) (with .idl interfaces and other things).
