Loading and Registering a Type Library

The Automation dynamic link library, Oleaut32.dll, provides several functions that you can call to load and register a type library. Calling LoadTypeLibEx, as shown in the following example, both loads the library and creates the registry entries.

Example

ITypeLib *pTypeLib;
HRESULT hr;
hr = LoadTypeLibEx("example.tlb", REGKIND_REGISTER, &pTypeLib);
if(SUCCEEDED(hr))
{
    pTypeLib->Release();
} else {
    exit(0); // Handle errors here.
}
