Register DLL/EXE on server?


Is it possible for me to register a DLL or EXE (COM) on a dreamhost server?


On a shared server? Very doubtful.


Typically registering a DLL or EXE file on the server is reserved for windows machines as far as I am aware.

Seeing as Dreamhost hosts their sites on what seems to be Linux machines I don’t think it will be possible to do so. I would contact tech support directly about it at


If necessary, log in using your administrator account.
Click Start and type command or cmd at the search box. It will depend on what Windows version you have.
Type regsvr32 “path and FileName.dll” at the command prompt. Hit the Enter key. Make sure that you enter the correct name and file path. An example is “C:\Windows\System32\example.dll”. This will register the file.
After registration, a message will appear telling you registration was successful. The message will inform you that the file has been placed in the Windows Registry.

If you want to manually register/unregister DLL files via the Regsvr32 Command Line, you can do so.
