Regsvr32 is the command-line tool that registers .dll files as command components in the registry. You can use gacutil.exe also when you used a strong name key pair else use regsvr32. Both are used only to register dll files and not com components

regsvr32 is windows equivalent to ldconfig in Linux. It is a command-line utility in Microsoft Windows operating systems for registering and unregistering DLLs and ActiveX controls in the Windows Registry.

One important fact is to use regsvr32, a DLL must export the functions DllRegisterServer and DllUnregisterServer

regsvr32 abc.dll for registering a file
regsvr32 /u abc.dll for unregistering a file
