Cannot Register .dll File

Trying to register .dll file using command: regsvr32.exe  C:\WINDOWS\SysWow64\shdocvw.dll.
Getting the following error message:
[Window Title]

The module "C:\WINDOWS\SysWow64\shdocvw.dll" was loaded but the entry-point DllUnregisterServer was not found.

Make sure that "C:\WINDOWS\SysWow64\shdocvw.dll" is a valid DLL or OCX file and then try again.


I verified that the file does exist in this location and that I have 'Full Control' permission over it. I need to register this file because we have an Access 2003 database running on a Windows Server 2008 server. We have an object that launches an Adobe window that uses this file and requires that it be registered. Any help is appreciated.

I was able to resolve this by upgrading to Internet Explorer 8.
See this link for diagnosis and work around for your specific error message.  The problem appears to be that your dll is designed for 64 bit processor and you are registering it in a 32 bit environment.

The processor and OS are 64-bit.
Yes, but you registered the dll under regsrvr32, which is 32 bit.
