I tried it and it did not take.......I'll let you know after I try it again. I think there should be a back slash after regsvr32.

Are you the administrator and can you do this

Administrators can use a program shortcut to set the compatibility mode for a target program. This requires that the Compatibility-mode properties be correctly installed and registered on the computer by using the previous steps. To enable Compatibility mode by using a program shortcut:

Log on as Administrator,
Right-click the shortcut, and then click Properties,
Click the Compatibility tab. This tab appears only if the Compatibility-mode interface has been properly enabled on the computer,
Click to select the Run in Compatibility Mode check box to enable Compatibility-mode support for the program,
Click either Windows 95 or Windows NT 4.0 compatibility mode in the drop-down box,
Click OK to save the changes,
Double-click the shortcut to run the program.

I went to the windowsupdate on microsoft and fished downloading all upgrades and now the command above works.
So I recommend to all that you first finish updating your windows OS, before trying the above.
