Registering shdocvw.dll

I have downloaded shareware that requires shdocvw.dll.  The program includes it, but gives an "Error registering shdocvw.dll" message.  Is there any way to fix this without installing IE4?  I really don't want THAT on my system. :)
Thanks.

Download filemon or ntfilemon at www.sysinternals.com. This utility will show you which file is missing.

shdocview.dll relies on the installation of IE4, it just holds the HTML viewr component that can be used by other applications. BTW: IE4 is not _that_ bad...
Also, you could try to register it manually by typing 'regsvr32 shdocview.dll' or 'rundll32 shdocview.dll,DllRegisterServer'

Maybe an older version of the DLL already is registered?
Maybe your setup-program dont try to unregister the old one?
You can manually Register/Unregister with RegSvr32.exe.
Included in Visual C++ and redistributable.

Hi,
i think the problem is conflic between version, that dll is already registered by some program and provably is not the same version as the one you have rigth now. Try uninstal the dll and then install it again ( use regsrv32 ).
