It is actually looking for a program called regsvr32.exe.  The programmer must have mis-typed it in their program.  regsvr32 is a program that will "register" the DLL's and OCX's that came with your program ("register" means to make them avaliable to all of windows.)

you could copy your existing regsvr32.exe to regsvi32.exe and it should ork, but I would not install the program.  If they mispelled that, well, I wonder how well the program is put together.

It should have come with you Windows installation. However, you can also look for Regsvr.exe. If you find that - get back to me and I'll try and walk you thru it.

regsvr32.exe is an executable file to register dll and activex components as U may be knowing, the file comes along with win95 installation, if U could not find it do install windows 95 again with typical installation else mail me up so that I can forward it to u. This file will be registered into the system directory as soon as system is booted with windows 95. I will wait for your reply
