Manually install add-on in Internet Explorer 11

Hello,
I have an installer that is supposed to add an extension to Internet Explorer. This extension is used to view video files from a specific program. The install runs successfully, but the add-on is not added to Internet Explorer. On another computer that has the add-on installed successfully I found the location of the .dll file for the add-on. I located that .dll file on the computer in question, but I'm not sure how to install this .dll as an add-on in Internet Explorer (If that's even possible). We are using Internet Explorer 11, Windows 7 64-bit. All recent Windows updates have been installed.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance,
- Ben

In IE add-ons are usually installed when you visit a site requiring the add-on.  You will then usually get a popup asking if you want to install the add-on.
However, if you have the .dll maybe all you have to do is register it

Registering the .dll fixed our problem on one computer. The other computer needed to be re-imaged to fix its issue.
