VB6fr.dll and Windows server 2003 64 bits

Hi folks,

I have an old program written in Visual Basic 6.0 (SP6). I have to install this program on a Windows Server 2003 R2 (STD) 64 bits.

Problem : When i run it, there is a box saying "The language DLL 'VB6FR.DLL' could not be found". I then copy this dll from a 32 bits system, paste it in the /system32 folder, and registered it with "Regsvr32 vb6fr.dll". A new box appears : "vb6fr.dll was loaded, but the DllRegisterServer entry point was not found. The file can not be registered".

Question :

- is it possible to run my program, written in VB6 32 bits on my 64 bits server ?
- if yes, how ?

Thanks for your ideas !

NB : i develop in french, therefore the vb6FR.dll.
