InprocServer32 key in registry..what does it do?


I was trying to get rid of all instances of a program that I uninstalled. I came across the "InprocServer32" key in the registry that had information about my uninstalled program and another entry called "ThreadingModel" with a value of "Apartment". Can/should I delete all values in the InprocServer32 key or just the one with my program information in it? I have seen alot of "InprocServer32" keys around in the registry....what is it for and what does the "ThreadingModel" do? Thanks in advance.

I read that also. I can now reply to people like an expert but haven't a clue what I am talking about. The only thing I think I understand is that I can eliminate the "Apartment" value because it appears to be a variable associated with my uninstalled program. I can also leave it in if I read it right. Thanks.

Hi again jstaffon
Like you..the way I read, it would appear to be harmless.....so perhaps best just left alone?

InProcServer32 specifies the path of the 32 bit DLL that implements the server. The ThreadingModel is there if the inprocess server is multithreaded.

It is harmless to leave them there, but those CLSID's keys they are connected to will collect and clutter up the registry. There is an easier and safer way to do this. http://www.vtoy.fi/jv16/shtml/regcleaner.shtml
