DLL files may not be registered by the RegisterDlls directive in a printer driver for a Windows Vista Service Pack 1-based or Windows Server 2008-based computer

This article has been archived. It is offered "as is" and will no longer be updated.
Symptoms
Consider the following scenario:
  • You develop a printer driver for a Windows Vista Service Pack 1-based or Windows Server 2008-based computer.
  • You use a RegisterDlls directive in the printer driver's INF file to register some library (DLL) files.
However, when a user installs the printer driver, the DLL files may not be registered as expected. Additionally, the DLL files are registered successfully if the user installs the printer driver again.
Cause
This problem occurs because the system may try to register the DLL files before they are copied to the correct location.
