Error while register DLL RRS feed

  • Question

  • On Windows XP system, I was using regsvr32 to register a dll for a normal user (non admin user) and it was successfully getting registered.

    Recently OS of the system is changed to windows 7. Whenever I tried to register same dll on this window 7 system I am getting an error. [<DLL file> was loaded but the call to DllRegisterServer failed with error code 0x80070005].

    I debugged it bit and found that if I use elevated cmd (i.e Run it with admin rights), it gets registered successfully. My problem is I cannot use admin privileges all the times. Is there any method through which I can register same dll for normal user(without admin). Requesting for the help.

  • Which specific DLL file were you trying to register? What was the reason behind registering?
