Windows 7: Self-registration of DLL fails in Windows 7

Self-registration of DLL fails in Windows 7

Hi All,
I am facing problem with self-registration of my dll.The dll fails with an error - "The following files did not self-register or unregister ---- Access is Denied". I am the administrator of the machine.I have turned off the UAC. I have registry rights too.The dll has been developed by us and it is working fine in XP.
The installation package has been build using InstallShield_7.01 on a Windows 7 machine.The software has been working fine on Windows XP without any issue for years now but on Windows 7 it is having problem with registration of the dll components.Is it an issue of some protected registry keys of windows 7 on which i might not have permission.If so how to access those registry.
On manually registering the dll using the regsvr32, we are able to register the dll and the software works fine.I want to know how can i correct this error without manually using the regsvr32.Is there any changes we need to have in our installation package to fix this errors? Do i need to have some more rights on my windows 7 machine.

Thanks in Advance
