call to DllRegisterServer failed with error code 0x80004005 on Vista

Experts,

I'm trying to register a VB6 DLL on a windows Vista machine and I get the following error:

The module <myDLL File>  was loaded but the call to DllRegisterServer failed with error code 0x80004005.

The logged in user I  is an Administrator account but I noticed that files may not be copied or saved to certain folders like C:\.

Any ideas? This is super urgent!

Thanks

If there are no other errors have you tried registering it with an elevated command prompt?
(Start, All Programs, Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as Administrator)
Then use regsvr32 to register the DLL

Hi

I had to leave the site shortly after posting the question.   Someone else sorted it out.

I never used this method before.  You taught me something new.  I have been able to replicate and solve the problem this way on another PC.  (Just for my own benefit.)  For these two reasons I will accept the solution.

Thanks
