DLL registration

Does the spec allow DLL registration (at startup) and de-registration (at shutdown) via regsvr?

In other words, can a portable app launcher take care of DLL registration?

I think yes

I'm not completely sure, but as drivers and services are also allowed, I think this should be ok.

Anything is OK, so long as it gets reverted to its original state at the end. In NSIS it's very straightforward - RegDLL and UnregDLL. I just want to work out exactly what happens with it, what backing up needs to take place when there is already a copy of the DLL there, etc. before I implement it in the Launcher.
