Installing / Registering MS DLLs on WinXP

Our application requires that MS DLLS be present on WinXP. These are ATL71, GDIPLUS, MSVCP71 and MSVCR71. We have been advised that installing WinXP SP3 will install and register these DLLs. That has not been the case in many isntances.

We have copies of these DLLs. So we tried to register them using REGSVR32.EXE. They ALL failed with the message: "REGSVR32.exe was not able to find the required entrypointin the module specified in the command line. This can occur if the entrypoints are not properly exported from the module or if the module is not a .DLL or .OCX file."

These are valid MS DLLs which were copied from the PCs that did install them using SP3.

Q1. Why did SP3 not istall them on all PCs
Q2. Why can I not register them.

Thanks for any help. Stan
