Regsvr32 not working

Hello experts:

I recently downloaded a copy of Data Dynamics Active Reports which is supposedly compatible with VS 2005 Beta 2.
Some of the DLLs did not register so Data Dynamics Customer suport asked me to do the following:

1) C:\WINDOWS\system32\regsvr32.exe /u {PATHTOARNET}\ARVSPackage.dll
2) Run Visual Studio. Then exit it.
3) C:\WINDOWS\system32\regsvr32.exe /v {PATHTOARNET}\ARVSPackage.dll
4) Run Visual Studio. You should now be able to access RPX files.

Problem is no matter what command I use (the ones I've tried so far are below) they keep coming back with the message:
Load library failed: The specified module could not be found

regsvr32 /u [c:\ProgramFiles\CommonFiles\DataDynamics\ActiveReportsfor.NET2.0] ARVSPackage.dll

regsvr32 /u [c:\ProgramFiles\CommonFiles\DataDynamics\ActiveReportsfor.NET2.0\ARVSPackage.dll]

regsvr32 /u c:\ProgramFiles\CommonFiles\DataDynamics\ActiveReportsfor.NET2.0\ARVSPackage.dll

regsvr32 /u {c:\ProgramFiles\CommonFiles\DataDynamics\ActiveReportsfor.NET2.0}\ARVSPackage.dll

regsvr32 /u {c:\ProgramFiles\CommonFiles\DataDynamics\ActiveReportsfor.NET2.0\ARVSPackage.dll}

regsvr32 /u (c:\ProgramFiles\CommonFiles\DataDynamics\ActiveReportsfor.NET2.0\ARVSPackage.dll)
Can anybody please tell me what I'm doing wrong?

NOTE: The ARVSPackage.dll does exist on the c:\Program Files\Common Files\Data Dynamics\Active Reports for .NET 2.0\ folder.


regsvr32 [/u] [/s] [/n] [/i[:cmdline]] dllname

/u : Unregisters server.

/s : Specifies regsvr32 to run silently and to not display any message boxes.

/n : Specifies not to call DllRegisterServer. You must use this option with /i.

/i:cmdline : Calls DllInstall passing it an optional [cmdline]. When used with /u, it calls dll uninstall.

dllname : Specifies the name of the dll file that will be registered.

/? : Displays help at the command prompt.
