Dear Experts,
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/837910/en-us, after
download MouseWheel fix for  Excel 2003  VBA editor mousr scroll bar issue  from the site,
 From the instruction, I try to run regsvr32 <path>\VB6IDEMouseWheelAddin.dll  that is not working, probably it is permission issue , so that I try copy the dll file into MS Excell office system directory,
After checking on control-panel on window, my account on window 7 is adminstrator but
I could NOT copy one file into  c:\Program Files <x86>Microsoft Office\Office11

The CMD command is

copy d:\temp\VB6IDEMouseWheelAddin.dll c:\Program Files <x86>Microsoft Office\Office11
save/write reject
Copy   0 files

Why ?
Any place where I can change the permission mode for doing the command
Supposed amdinstrator could do any command ? Right ?

Maybe the spaces in the path are a problem. Also there is missing a backslash. Try this:

copy d:\temp\VB6IDEMouseWheelAddin.dll "%ProgramFiles(x86)%\Microsoft Office\Office11"

Even though you're an admin, that's not good enough. Try running in an elevated command prompt. There are numerous ways to get an elevated prompt. One is Start>All Programs>Accessories then right-click on Command Prompt and select "Run as administrator". Regards, Joe

regsvr32 the dll file that is working but it is not imported into VBA ADDin
from http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/excel-help/add-support-for-the-scroll-wheel-to-the-microsoft-visual-basic-for-applications-6-environment-HA010117590.aspx

So make the new thread for solving other issue from addin for VBA
copy d:\temp\VB6IDEMouseWheelAddin.dll "%ProgramFiles(x86)%\Microsoft Office\Office11"
is working if run cmd.exe with as administrator
Thanks for your reply
