Windows 7: Access denied registering dll files Windows 7 Pro 64

Hi FarNorth,

Im somewhat confused as to why your doing it
The system automatically registers dll's, its not a standard user option
Fair enough they can become corrupted.

please run, from an elevated command mode
sfc /scannow

wouldn't hurt to run
KB947821, SURT a repair tool
and chkdsk /r

post the results


Register dll file
To register a dll or ocx file, open a command prompt windows as an administrator, type the following and hit Enter:
regsvr32 tabctl32.ocx

Roy - Thanks for looking at this.

The dll and ocx files are for some custom programs that work with a drafting program I use. I've successfully registered them on several different computers with no issues.
The only thing I can think of that's different with this system is that the operating system was an upgrade to windows 7 pro instead of a new install. Not sure why that would make any difference but who knows.
I've always registered them as you suggest above with no issues.

I'm not familiar with "KB947821 SURT" please explain.

Thanks again for your help.
