HI,

I am having an issue I need to register a dll in win 7 64 bit in order to play Skyrim.
It's a fresh install of win7 64 bit with all updates.

Tried the following:

regsvr32 X3DAudio1_7.dll

and

regsvr32 C:\Windows\SysWOW64\X3DAudio1_7.dll

The file is present in both system folders.

The exact error is:

The module C:\Windows\SysWOW64\X3DAudio1_7.dll
was loaded but the entry-point DLLRegister server was not found.

Please help.

Thanks

regsvr32 C:\Windows\SysWOW64\X3DAudio1_7.dll


create a batch file of this command ...right click on the batch file and click on run as admin..


Post results.


Can also disable uac and then try registering the dll files.

I hope there is not typo error..i mean the filename ...uppercase lowercase.

If you have any antivirus software installed then uninstall it ...reboot and then try to register the file..also make sure the file or folder has full permission.

Also this forum might have a answer to your question

No typo everything is copy and paste.

That forum does not really help as this is a specific Windows problem not to do with Skyrim.
They tell you to register the files but that is what  I cannot do!

No joy in safe mode either, I also tried to set full permissions for everyone from another OS as it's a dual boot. Still no fun.

OK fixed it by downloading and installing the MS DirectX library.

Thanks for the help.

If the file does not have the DLLRegister Entrypoint then it cannot be registered using regsvr32.exe.

While researching I did see that someone had success copying it into the DirectX10 folder under the Skyrim folder.
