Isn't the error message obvious? Your problem is not registration of a DLL, your problem is that DLL. You cannot register what cannot be registered. It just shouldn't be.

Where did this dll come from?

Please see my comment to the question. The thing is: the question, as formulated, simply makes no sense.

I'm not sure you are aware of purpose of regsvr32. It registers or unregisters ActiveX control or other COM components in system registry:

So, first question would be: do you really want to create a system-wide control or COM component to be registered and why? I, for example, would not do it at all. But if you really have reason to do that, the second question would be: why you don't develop such component and instead try to register… who knows what…

it makes me puzzled ,and to find solution of it .. i hv googled and get answer like below..

but i can't ...

so sir , now i m totally dependent to u .. pls advise me what to do ??
thankfully yours...

My first advice is: stop using VB6. This is a product which never existed, because I cannot call such trash a "product". Most people say it's obsolete, but it actually much worse. Don't torture yourself. Don't waste your time. Don't do COM. And please, don't be dependent on some people. Decide everything by yourself. First, decide what you want to use, depending on your requirements. Learn it, try it out. VB.NET might be the most comfortable for you, but you may consider something else...
