There is none. Ultimately both call the DLLRegisterServer function in the DLL/OCX.

However, you should use niether to register COM information since, if a dependency is absent, the registration will fail. Export the COM information into a .REG. Import that .REG into your project and, if prompted, elect to use the advertising tables instead of the 'Registry' table.
