? How is the ShellExt Registered (Manual Installation)

Hi,

How is the TortoiseSVN shell extension registered? Every shell
extension that I've seen has been installed by registering its DLL,
for example: > regsvr32.exe [/i] SomeSHExt.dll, where the registration
code is contained with the extension code in the DLL.

How does TortoiseSVN do it? From what I can tell, the installer
manually adds the registry entries. Is this correct?

What I am trying to do is to avoid using the installer, and manually
install the required files and registry entries. I have done it this
way with a lot of dev apps, and use regsvr32 as part of a custom-made
install script (where necessary) to register shell extensions and
services and such that are too complex too simply add a registry
entry.

Thanks.
