I'm having trouble registering a .dll in windows 7.  when i call up the command prompt and type regsrv32 xxx.dll i just get a unrecognizable message.  Can someone give me an easy way to do this.  For some reason a .dll that is in the right directory is not working.  I keep getting an error message when trying a search function with our ERP software that the .ddl is missing.  
I am going to edit the system variables to attempt i fix but i would like to know this in case that does not clear up the issue.

You have to run the command prompt as administrator I believe.

As in don't pull it up by typing in cmd, right click on the command prompt link and click Run as administrator.   Just to clarify.

The register program is also called regsvr32.exe, not regsrv32.exe   Here is a web page telling how to register a DLL file:
