Hello all,

I am trying to build a merge module for MapInfo MapX, the documentation details the following;

Olepro32.dll - Must be registered using regsvr32.exe
MapX50.dll - Must be registered using regsvr32.exe. Prior to registering, make sure the MapX dependent files are installed, and
mdatasetint.tlb - must be installed using regtyplib.exe.

I think I understand what regsvr32.exe and regtyplib.exe but I don't know to use windows installer to install and register these components; How do I achieve this?

Any help and tips gratefully recieved, thanks in advance

For the Microsoft files: use the respective merge modules where available
For MapX50.dll: either add it to the SelfReg table, or extract the COM registration information at build and add them to the Class (etc.) tables, which is the recommended procedure.
You can find more information about self registration in the MSI docs.
