I used to use AnalogX DirectX manager to register DirectX plugins, but it's not working on Vista, even in compatibility mode. I am referring to audio type DirectX plugin. What do I do to register a DirectX plugin with Vista?

OK, I figured out the solution:

Follow these steps to register (DirectX) DLLs (or OCX's):
  1. On the Taskbar, select Start > Run.
  2. In the Open field, type regsvr32 "<path>\NameOfFile.extension", where <path> is the directory where the file is located on your computer and NameOfFile.extension is the name of the file. For example: regsvr32 "C:\Windows\System32\ReverbDirectX.dll"
  3. Press Enter.
To unregister/remove a DirectX DLL, type regsvr32 /u "<path>\NameOfFile.extension"
