Assertion error when registering a DLL

I am trying to register a dll developed in Visual C++ for use in a VB 6 app. The process gives me the following error: "Debug assertion failed" and specifies Viewhtml.cpp line 419 as the file where the assertion error fails.  Is there an obvious reason why I'm gettin this error - maybe a required dll on my system (Windows NT 4 SP4).  I infortunately do not have any knowledge of what is used to develop the dll in Visual C++!  Hope somebody out there can help?

Hi RosalineHe
U need not regidter dll
put it in UR current directory or winnt/system directory and use following statement to access functions U will get the result

[Public | Private] Declare Sub globalname Lib libname$ [Alias aliasname$]
[(argument list)]

RosalineHeAuthor Commented:

The VB app I am trying to write is a dll itself.  The dll I am trying to  register is more like an interface between my app and an external product and has a *tlb.  We operate according to strict standards and even though your suggestion is workable, it is not unfortunately against our standard.  Do you know of any Mfc* library that I might be missing that could cause an assertion error?
I don't think it is because of mfc library UR getting assertion failure
do U have the source code for UR dll or do U know what kind of dll it is?
I think that may be causing the registering function to fail.
Remember it is not necessary that UR dll have problems to get a assertion.
the method I have suggested is std method to access a dll even API's are excessed using this function
Hope this helps
