Manually register DLLS on w2008 server

I have a few asp applications that I need to manually register the DLLs.
In w2003 server I used to use regsvr32.exe, but I can't use that on my new w2008 server, I get the following error:
"The version of this file is not compatible with the version of Windows you're running. Check your computer's system information to see whether you need an x86 (32-bit) or x64 (64-bit) version of the program, and then contact the software publisher."

Any advice much appreciated

Are you using the one in c:\windows\system32 or c:\windows\syswow64?  If it's a 32bit DLL you will need to use the one in the c:\windows\syswow64 folder. If its a 64bit dll, you need to use the one in the system32 folder.

-Yes this is counter-intuitive, but that's how MS did it.

Spot on, thanks for that. For some reason I was trying to download regsvr32.exe, rather than use the one in syswow64.

Cheers
