Unregistered Data Environment class

While starting a new Data project in VB6, I am getting an error "Errors during load. Refer to ......log files for details".  My OS is Win2K workstation

and when the log file is viewed, it shows:
Line 2: Class {C0E45035-5775-11D0-B388-00A0C9055D8E} of control DataEnvironment1 was not a loaded control class.
Line 0: The file C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\VB98\Template\Projects\DataEnv.Dsr could not be loaded.

Now I have confirmed that DataEnvironment designer option is checked in Componets Dialog->Designer Tab.
If I try to manualy add the DataEnvironment designer I get an error
Class not registered.
Looking for object with CLSID {3D5C6BF2-69A3-11D0-B393-00A0C9055D8E}

I have tried running the command
regsvr32 "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Designer\MSDE.DLL" but this did not solve the problem.

Can someone suggest as to what registry manipulations need to be performed to overcome the problem.

I would suggest getting rid of DE at all.  You really do not need it and will be better of without it.
