Hi I am new to autoit, i am trying to create an auto updating software installer. If got that bit sorted but im stuck on the installer .exe files. I need to basically do what the vb6 bootstrapper toolkit does. Install dll files but some are shared, some are system, some are self registering etc. I am trying to replicate what is shown in the lst file:

[bootstrap Files]

File1=@VB6STKIT.DLL,$(WinSysPathSysFile),,,7/15/00 12:00:00 AM,101888,6.0.84.50

File2=@COMCAT.DLL,$(WinSysPathSysFile),$(DLLSelfRegister),,5/31/98 12:00:00 AM,22288,4.71.1460.1

I am just copying the file using filecopy(), how do i make the files self register (or do they, as the name suggests, register on their own!) also how do i make them shared?

WHen i run the vb toolkit setup the program works, when i do it my way i get errors.

HELP!! Im so stuck, i can answer any questions any one has, i am just so desperate to work this out! I have tried manually registering the dll's and that made no difference!

yes all except the silent switch. My nw installer puts all the same files in the same place as the vb installer, so i guess im just not registering them correctly? I dont want to use the vb installer because it requires too much user intervention, giving the option to remove dll etc. I also use runas to elivate security level. Th lst file shows all what i need to do, and i thought i was doing that! But still the program doesnt work!
