    It's happening because REGSVR32 is trying to register the DLL but doesn't have the adequate permissions to do so.



    You have to run REGSVR32 from an elevated command prompt -- as the Administrator. (And no, that's not the account you're using on a daily basis).



    To spawn an elevated command prompt, enter "cmd" in the Start button area, and press Ctl-Shift-Enter (all at once). Accept the UAC prompt. The resulting command window will say "Administrator" in the title bar.
