What is the command to unload dll in Windows 2000?

The short answer is, there is none.
Please explain what your situation is, any error messages and the DLL
name and anything else like OS version that may help.

Ray I did not see any text in your reply. I have done
this before but I just can't remember the name of the
executable in system32. I have search the web but I can't
seem to find it. Any ideas is greatly appreciated?

My reply was just a question mark, indicating that I didn't understand.
Are you talking about unREGISTERing? If so:

regsvr32 /u [path\]file.dll

That will unregister.

Enter:
regsvr32 /?
for a full list of options.

Mark, I am running Windows 2000 server. When you install
program sometimes you are prompted to unload certain dll's
because it is in use. There is a command I think is
system32 that you can execute to unload/load dll. I just
can't remember the file name.

There's nothing I can think of, but this is why pretty much any program you
install starts out with, "We strongly advise that you close all
applications..."

Ray this is the command regsvr32. So, it is not unloading
but unregistering dll's. Thanks a bunch Ray.

Thanks Dave. I prefer to use regsvr32 becuase it keeps you
from rebooting your system.

Sometimes you can rename, restart, then delete.

A library is unloaded when all applications that loaded the library exit
or explicitly unloads them.

What is the command to unload dll in Windows 2000?

Ages ago, I used DLLMASTER for this - haven't used it for some time.
Also, WPS.EXE from Microsoft is reportedly useful. However, I think in a
32-bit environment you are expected to exit/kill the application; that
will then also unload the DLL. Pen-ultimate resort: log out/in. Last
resort: reboot.

Thanks Mike. The one I was looking for is regsvr32 found
in the winnt\syste32 directory of the server.
