    Self regiserting DLLs question and libraries question.

    Hello. Can anyone point me to some source that would show me what I need in the DLL to make it selfregister or unregister. Also, when I compile a DLL it creates a library file, does that file have to be in the same folder as DLL, because when I did it it needed a library and when looking through other apps i didnt find any lib files laying beside DLLs with the same name.
    Thanks for any help!

    The DLL is a dynamic-link library and is needed by the application.

    The LIB file is an import library that is not needed by an application, but is necessary when you want to use the DLL's functions when coding a program.

    LIB files should normally be placed in the LIB folder of your compiler.
