Windows 7: Regsvr32 on windows 7 Pro x64 "the specified module could not be found

Regsvr32 on windows 7 Pro x64 "the specified module could not be found

Hi All

before anyone yells at me, i've gone through the umpteen dozen threads regarding the above issue, tried the solutions, and have had no luck.

for ones who don't know the issue:

i need to register a customer supplied DLL written in VB6 for our platform. the DLL is obviously a 32bit DLL and i am running a 64bit system. We cannot get a newer version of the DLL from the supplier as they haven't developed one yet.

When we attemp to register the DLL (using c:\syswow64\regsrv32 in an elevated command prompt with the DLL in the same directory), we get the following:

"The module "module.dll" failed to load.

Make sure the binary is stored at the specified path or debug it to check for problems with the binary or dependant .DLL files.

the specified module could not be found"

the dll works fine on 32 bit machines, and there are no dependants.

my first thought was permissions, but with an elevated command i can access anything.

i've tried with the DLL in various places, both regsvr32s, and have had no luck.

any other ideas out there? currently i'm even open to manually editing the registry, if that would work, and i knew where to put the refference.
