Installation problem with expsrv.dll in VB 6.0

i am trying to do a project in VB 6.0 using Access 97 as
the backend.

The Package and Deployment Wizard compiles the project
fine but when I try to install the program
it complains about  a dll file called expsrv.dll which is located
in C:\Windows\System. It gives the following message:

 ' An error occurred while registering the file 'C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\EXPSRV.DLL'

Searching MSDN reveals that this dll belongs to Jet 3.51.

How do i solve this problem - is the dll corruptted ?

I have tried to solve this problem by coping this same file
from another computer but still get the same problem....

Help pls,
