Registering a 32bit .dll file on a 64bit System

When trying to install ProSteam for a client I happened to run into this problem. It seems to me that a dll file is not registering on the 64bit OS of windows 7 on this particular clients computer however it works fine on another 64bit windows 7 machine. Is there a way to manually register the 32bit dll file on this computer? Please see attached picture for errors that occur during installation.

While there are two versions of the file on a 64-bit Windows 7 machine, the syntax is the same:

you need to update the machine to 64 bit windows. although some things work well with 32/64 bit transfer, the dll file is not one of them. most hardware and software interact badly when trying to correspond to the 32/64 bit transfer

I have found a solution. The problem was that the Office 2010 installed was 64 bit.
Installing Office 32bit resolved this problem.

Thanks very much for trying to assist.

Installing Office 2010 32bit instead of Office 64bit resolved this problem.
