VScript or Bat Script to Register DLL File as Administrator

I need help registering  a dll file as administrator.  I can right click the cmd and then "Run as Administrator".  This would allow me to register, however, my issue is that I need to register this for over 100+ PC.

So I need help to do this as a login script.  Normally this is how I would register the dll file.

This is for 64-bit OS:
C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Regsvr32.exe "\\serverA1\ERP\sscvix.dll"

This is for 32-bit OS:
C:\Windows\System32\Regsvr32.exe "\\serverA1\ERP\sscvix.dll"

So need help with determining which OS is on that PC as well as registering that dll file as administrator.  Any ideas?

Below I've pasted Oberwald's solution for a VBS that runs batch file as elevated.

Here is a script that forces UAC elevation:
'Elevate this script before invoking it.
'25.2.2011 FNL
bElevate = False
if WScript.Arguments.Count > 0 Then If WScript.Arguments(WScript.Arguments.Count-1) <> "|" then bElevate = True
if bElevate Or WScript.Arguments.Count = 0 Then ElevateUAC
'Your script goes here

'Run this script under elevated privileges
Sub ElevateUAC
    sParms = " |"
    If WScript.Arguments.Count > 0 Then
            For i = WScript.Arguments.Count-1 To 0 Step -1
            sParms = " " & WScript.Arguments(i) & sParms
    End If
    Set oShell = CreateObject("Shell.Application")
    oShell.ShellExecute "wscript.exe", WScript.ScriptFullName & sParms, , "runas", 1
End Sub

Have you looked at the RUNAS command in Vista and WIndows 7?  It's probably more suited to what you're looking for.  The only problem is if you used a batch file for this, you'll need to put an admin level password plain text inside it.  This will require you to give your users execute NTFS permissions and remove read NTFS permission.
Hi, on your \\serverA1\ERP\sscvix.dll file, grant Domain Computers read rights, then try running this script as a "Startup script" instead of a login script.



strComputer = "."
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")

strArchitecture = GetOSArchitecture(objWMIService)

Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

If strArchitecture = 32 Then
	objShell.Run "C:\Windows\System32\Regsvr32.exe /s ""\\serverA1\ERP\sscvix.dll""", 0, True
	objShell.Run "C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Regsvr32.exe /s ""\\serverA1\ERP\sscvix.dll""", 0, True
End If

Function GetOSArchitecture(objRemote)
	' TITLE: GetOSArchitecture
	' DESCRIPTION: This function will use a WMI query to determine the system
	'	architecture of the target computer
	'	objRemote must be an object that is bound to the WMI service on the target machine
	'	Make a call such as Set objWMI = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
	'	and pass objWMI to this function
	'	A string value being 32 or 64
	Set colOS = objRemote.ExecQuery("SELECT OSArchitecture FROM Win32_OperatingSystem",, 48) 
    For Each objOS In colOS 
        intAddressWidth = objOS.OSArchitecture
    If intAddressWidth = "32-bit" Then intAddressWidth = 32
    If intAddressWidth = "64-bit" Then intAddressWidth = 64
    GetOSArchitecture = intAddressWidth
End Function
