Re-registering a dll file -Seven

Please note that, on a 64-bit Windows operating system, there are two versions of RegSvr32.
The 64-bit version is %systemroot%\System32\regsvr32.exe
The 32-bit version is %systemroot%\SysWoW64\regsvr32.exe
Ensure you're using the right one.

How to register DLL files in Windows 7
Register DLL files
Registering DLL files is quite simple, all you need to know is the command to register DLL files and the name of the DLL file that you want to register.
The command to register the files manually is called regsvr32. Now let’s take a quick look at the syntax of regsvr32:
/u Used to unregister DLL files
/s If you don’t want any dialogs you can use the “s” for silent option
/c Get the console output
/n Register DLL file without DllRegisterServer
/i Register DLL file with DllInstall (or DllUninstall if /u is specified)
With option /i you can pass an optional command via /i:cmdline.
DllInstall is used only for application installation and setup.

Manually Register DLL files via Command Prompt

So, to register DLL files, simply open up an elevated command prompt and run commands like:
regsvr32 shell32.dll
regsvr32 shdocvw.dll

If you successfully re-register a DLL file, you should get a message like this one:
DllRegisterServer in shell32.dll succeeded.
