How to run server's DLL from client?

By Shanghai Sam ·
Besides using MTS, is there anyway that i can ask my VB application (which is also installed in the server) to use the DLLs in its same folder? all the client computer will have a shortcut placed on their desktop in order to run the VB app. a fullinstallation for the necessary components will be done on each client computer, however some of the ActiveX DLLs are still under development/testing, therefore i dun wish to include the DLLs in the installation package becos those DLLs will be updated from time to time. there are around 200+ client computers, i dun want to keep updating their DLLs after periodical modifation from the source. since the EXE will be placed in the server, is there anyway that i can hardcode the VB application to search for the DLL from its own folder in the server rather than locally from the client computer?

I'm not a dev, but a systems engineer so I may be off track here BUT, I had to implement an app designed for local install and chose to run it from a central location for exactly the same reasons you describe. In my case I was able to use regsvr32 to register the dlls using the UNC path - IE

regsvr32 \\myserver\share\mydll.dll

It worked a treat !!
