Well there are basically two ways to do this.

One way, is to make a new file group for that file and enable its Self-Registered option.

The other is to use InstallScript to manually do it. Somewhere in the OnFirstUIAfter function, you would add code like the following:

LaunchAppAndWait("regsvr32", "/s <Filename>, WAIT);

where <Filename> includes the complete, fully-qualified path to the file. Naturally, this could be stored in variable and wouldn't have to be hard coded.

Since you're new though, I would probably recommend the former approach in your case.
