Windows 7: Problem registering a 32 bit dll in windows 7 (64 bit)

Problem registering a 32 bit dll in windows 7 (64 bit)

I have been trying to register a 32 bit com DLL (that was created in Delphi) in Windows 7, but Regsvr32 (located in the sysWOW64 folder, have also tried the version in the sys32 folder just in case) just hangs.

We have added various message windows into the initialization code of the DLL to find out where it was hanging, but Regsvr32 doesn't even get to the first one.
The same DLL registers fine in windows XP machines, but on the six Windows 7 machines that we have tried it on, it does not work.

Does anyone have any ideas on how we could solve this??
