Hi. I have a custom DLL that I need to include in a package. I've read in several places (on this message board and the Windows Installer SDK) that using the SelfRegTable is not best practice.

I'm a little lost as to how to get the file to register without using this table. Can anyone give me a shove in the right direction please?

Instead of using the SelfReg table it's better to add the dll registration info to the Registry table.
Capture the registry thats added when you manual register the file or if you already have it registered you would get the registry info automatically when importing the file to the project (using Wise Package Studio anyway).

Thanks AngelD. Registering the file and then using WPS helped a lot.
