In win2008 x64 bit server.
From previous installation I have some MyLib.dll stuck somewhere in Registry.

Uninstall wasn't done properly or some failures/deletes where during it.

So when next time when I am going to install product I am getting error:
Error 2753. The File 'MyLib.dll' is not marked for installation.

How to fix this problem?

    search your hard drive for the file. you may want to check and see if there is a folder in the program files directory that was left after the uninstall. ccleaner will do a good job of cleaning up the registry as rjantonelli has recommended

    Can you reinstall the programme that included that DLL, and then uninstall it again?

    If not, why not search the registry for occurrences of that DLL name and list them here.

    I'd also clear out the TMP folders.

    I search Registry on this DLL 'MyLib.dll' - no occurrences.

    Seems I am lost ...

    is it legitime, let's say if CCleaner will not help run

    regsvr32 /u MyLib.dll

    Well you can give that a try.
    As I said before, can you reinstall the application that DLL came with and then remove it again?

    I made also manual fix of Registry just this helped finally.
    There was somehow product key stacked.
