Call me stupid, but i cant quite figure out the instructions for the Byblos DLL. I registered the DLL, but what do I do from there? Its not exactly explained clearly <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_frown.gif">

Hehe, byblos' main language ain't English. You should see a VP logo when rightclicking the desktop and such. Just take a resource editor and replace the logo with your own (up to 96x96), inside the .dll (ok, not really a fully-fledged program; just for fun).

I'm not getting anything. thats the problem! I did this:

1) Unzipped dll into C:winntsystem32
2) ran:
regsvr32 C:winntsystem32[dll_name]
3) restarted

End result: absolutely nothing! What else am I supposed to do here?
Thanks in advance

Nothing, should work... you're in 2k, right (wasn't tested in NT), and with some recent version of IE ?

Myself, I had some probs with regsvr32.exe with an earlier version, but works now. You could give RegSvrExt shell extension a go, it's a all around nice extension.

Sorry, not much help. Then again, I'm not the coder: byblos@virtualplastic.net

First of all Andy dertermine if the dll is registered second, and perhaps more frustrating is that 2K does not seem to support contextual enhancements as well as 98(se) did...I had trouble with adding the shell extenetion that frontends the REGserver
used it in 98se with no problems but would not work in 2k also had a couple of other context apps that would not run.....

This is the last time I'm gonna do this today!

REGISTER COMPONENT..........Register Component is a Windows
system utility for Windows 95/98/NT4/2000 that allows users to
register/unregister DLL/EXE/OCX easily from a Windows interface, instead of
using regsvr32.exe from the command prompt. It very useful and time-saving when
registering multiple files spread throughout your hard disk. Simply add the
files you want to register/unregister to the list and select the
Register/Unregister button. You can also save the list of components to a text
file and load it back at a later time to register/unregister .....(free).....<A href="http://rosa.simplenet.com/">GO THERE!</A>


REGISTEREX.......... RegisterEx is a little helper
context-menu extension for power users and programmers who deal with OLE servers
(mostly in DLL and OCX files). If you fall into this category then you know that
usually such files export DllRegisterServer and DllUnregisterServer functions
that can be called to register the server in this file. To help you to register
your ActiveX controls and such stuff Microsoft has created a little helper
program called REGSVR32.EXE that registers/unregisters the specified server.
This shell extension works exactly as REGSVR32.EXE but adds 2 commands to the
context-menu of DLL, EXE and OCX files. Those commands, indeed, are "Register
server" and "Unregister server" <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif"> So, you have one-click access to those
commands and don't have to mess with the command-line REGSVR32.EXE tool. Also,
the program is smart enough only to add commands to those files that actually
can be registered/unregistered (ie that are OLE servers).....(free).....<A href="http://www.moonsoftware.com/freeware.html">GO THERE!</A>
