DOS command not executing...

Hello all,

I need to execute a dll with regserv32.

Assuming the file is on the desktop... I thought the command was something like:
regserv32 c:\windows\documents and settings\username\desktop\filename,RunDll

But it is not working so I am sure it must be wrong.

I need this asap so please help asap if you can.

Thank you in advance.

Per our forum rules, all threads must have a descriptive subject text. For example, do not post questions with subjects like "Help Me!", "Urgent!!" or "Doubt". Post subjects like "Execution Problems with Cron" or "Help with Backup Shell Script".

The reason for this is that nearly 95% of all visitors to this site come here because they are referred by a search engine. In order for future searches on your post (with answers) to work well, the subject field must be something useful and related to the problem!

In addition, current forum users who are kind enough to answer questions should be able to understand the essence of your query at first glance.

So, as a benefit and courtesy to current and future knowledge seekers, please be careful with your subject text. You might receive a forum infraction if you don't pay attention to this.

Thank you.

If your path and/or filename contains spaces, you have to quote it, eg
regserv32 "c:\windows\documents and settings\username\desktop\filename,RunDll"

Title corrected, sorry.

Also Thank you for the command help, I will try it. I am sure that is it, I forgot about the quotes for spaces in the path.

Ahh damit, I did not mean regserv, the command I am trying to run is:

RunDll32 "c:\windows\documents and settings\username\desktop\filename,RunDll"

The error I am getting is the command is not rocognized.

Also, I recall the command being case sensitive, does rundll32 need to be RunDll32?
