Register Server Error

Experts,

I'm trying to register some .ocx files after migrating my laptop from Windows XP to Windows 7.  When I do regsvr32 <ocx>, I get this error:

THe module <name> was loaded but the call to DllRegisterServer failed with error code 0x80004005.

Ideas?

it sounds like you're trying to do it as a non-administrator account... is that the case?

you'll need to be an administrator - you can temporarily add that user to the local 'administrators' group, do it, then remove them from administrators

When I look at my account in "user accounts", I am an administrator.

Use an elevated cmd

Start, All Programs, Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as Administrator

I found this on another thread:
(Start, All Programs, Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as Administrator)
Then use regsvr32 to register the DLL

I am having the same problem. I tried the suggestion above but still gettin the error. I am running windows 7 Professional. This is a VM. I am a local admin and a domain admin.

error msg: The module "name.dll" was loaded but the entry-point DllRegisterServer was not found. Make sure that "name.dll" is a valid DLL or OCX file and then try again.
