error registering MSSOAP30.dll in VB6 application setup

When installing a VB6 application I created, we get an error that it could not register the MSSOAP30.DLL. We still get an error when we try to manually register it with Regcvr32. I have read several of the posts here, but do not see a solution posted.  I really do not want to have to convert to VB.net at this time. Is there anything I can do right now to get this up and going quickly?

Do you have permissions the register any file in that computer ? If so post your error message here.

Try also the unregister (regsvr32.exe /u MSSOAP30.dll) and then register again (regsvr32.exe MSSOAP30.dll)

Is there an easy way to include the install with my install so they do not have to run both?

Well, with the built in Package and Deployment Wizard, not so easy.  You need an installer that can take merge modules, like:

Microsoft Visual Studio Installer 1.1
http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/vstudio/aa718352.aspx

With that you build the setup for the package using the merge modules from the download in the previous post.

I have the professional version of VB6. According to the documentation...it looks like it might have come with it. (I am basing this off the list on the bottom of the linked page with the heading "Availability"). I assume that means it is available within the product...or does that mean it is available FOR the product?

I'm not sure what you mean is available with the Pro version of VB6.  As far as I remember, just the PDW.
