When I try to register a DLL file on Windows 7 (32-bit) using Regsvr32, it gives the following error:

The module "XYZ.dll" failed to load. Make sure the binary is stored at the specified path or debug it to check for problems with the binary or dependent .DLL files

I don't have any issues on Windows XP or Windows Vista.

Do you have any suggestions?

You will be missing a dll on which the one you're trying to register is dependent.

You can use Dependency Walker to check this.
