Registering VB6stkit.dll during manual program install

I am going to be upgrading my workstation from 2000 to XP and I need to reinstall a custom program on the new PC. Unfortunately, I don't have the installation files, so I'm having to do the job manually, which seems to be a matter of simply copying over the program files, adding a couple of registry keys and copying over and registering the system DLLs it uses if they're not installed. I was a little worried that there might be problems given that the DLLs are stored in a different location in XP, so I tested it on my home PC and all seemed to go well except that I couldn't register VB6stkit.dll. I get the error message "VB6stkit.dll was loaded but the DLLRegisterserver entry point was not found."

I don't have VB6 installed, but the file is required for this software. Is there any way around this?
