I get error code 0x80020009

I have tried to register gif89.dll.

The error code state loaded ok but the call to dllRegisterServer failed with error code  0x80020009.
I searched the Internet on that code, but nothing I tried work to correct this problem.

I even used the 64 bit structure which is syswoow64 folder.

How do I correct this problem?

It doesn't matter; it is a safety feature that's been in the Windows OS since Windows XP to perform administrative tasks from the command window you have to specifically open the window as I've shown you; otherwise you have limited authority in the command window.

I am the administrator on the system I got these screen shots from and I have to do this if I want to register a dll file.

I am still waiting on help.  I do not understand the editing of the registers.  Not enough information or I do not know how to find the exact place in the registers.

Please I need to register C:\Windows\System32\Regsvr32.exe C:\Windows\System32\Gif89.dll .

I get the error that it loaded but the call to DLLRegisterServer failed due to 0x80020009.

I never had this problem with XP.


Please help.  I need to correct this problem.

Are you using REGSVR32 to register the dll? Try the following...

Click START
ENTER CMD  When you see the CMD.exe icon appear right click on it; you'll see a context menu appear select "Run as Administrator"
When the command window opens enter:

REGSVR32 gif89.dll

Since you are now running in administrative mode you shouldn't have a permission issue with the registry.

I have tried this before and still get the same error.  In the attached I made a few errors also.

Gif89.dll is in system32.

I even tried it in the 64 bit folder (syswow64) and the same error.

What do I need to do now?

The picture you posted doesn't indicate you are running the command window as administrator. You have to open it as administrator; please see the attached image for illustrative purposes.
