Registering a XL DLL in Windows 7

A VB6 application I created in XL doesn't run on Windows 7. This is reported to me by a user. I do not have Windows 7 here.

As far as I can tell, the trouble is that a DLL included in the installation failed to install.

The quickest way around this for now would be to manually install and register the DLL. Can this be done? I would have to relay your suggestions to the user. I don't want to screw up his OS, though, so some care is required.

What is the main difference between XL and Windows 7? And why does Microsoft do this to us?

I've located a local friend who has W7.

I will attempt an installation, and get first-hand observations.

Then I will get back to you here.

Thank you both.

I've been loaned a laptop with Win 7.

 I'll investigate your comments. But I didn't want to leave this question hanging in mid air.
