How to Register DLL Files on 64 Bit

A Dynamic Link Library (DLL) is a library that contains bits of data necessary to run certain programs and applications. Your processor (CPU) is either 32-bit or 64-bit. The main difference between these processors is that the 64-bit processor can handle larger amounts of Random Access Memory (RAM) than the 32-bit processor. Nevertheless, most of the functions, including registering a DLL are done the same way whether you have a 32-bit or 64-bit processor.
