There is a tool named RegSvrEx out on Code Project which seems to allow you just what you want. The syntax is: RegSvrEx [/u] [/c] servername With /u - Unregister server /c - Register or unregister (if /u is also specified) only for the current user servername - Full path of the server .exe or .dll See the comments on the article's page on how to ...

Like this: regsvr32 /n /i:user name.dll

If I were you, I would set up Process Monitor to track what's running that command. Set the filter to anything containing that GUID, then let it run for a few minutes until the prompt comes up. That should reveal the source, or at least give you some clues.

Some (dll) files in Windows need to be registered in order to be used by other applications, and by parts of the operating system itself. Shell32.dll is a critical system file that is used everywhere by Windows itself, and by other programs. When you install Windows, it registers all the files it needs, and that registration is basically writing some stuff ...

Shell32.dll is responsible for handling shell API calls, which affect a large amount of the items you interact with in Windows (for example opening files). On occasion some of the things that Shell32 is normally responsible for handling can be reassigned to other applications, or otherwise corrupted, causing any number of issues. The /i portion of that ...

The answer is PrivBar by Aaron Margosis. There is another problem you might have (well I did!) where you cannot register PrivBar because the user you want it registered with does not have the requisite rights to run Regsvr32. Part of the answer to this problem is RegSvrEx by Rama Krishna Vavilala which allows you to register a DLL to the current user, ...

Ok, after more searching, I found through Dependency Walker that the dll is referencing the API-MS-WIN-CORE-SYNCH-L1-1-0.DLL through the chain of other dlls. Based on this information from Microsoft, it doesn't look like this is compatible as is. It seems that I would have to recompile the DLL in order to make this work changing the references. Solution: ...

regsvr32 is a very simple program that simply loads a DLL and calls DllRegisterServer. It's the DLL that's taking the time to register not the regsvr32 process. If this is a build process under your control on a server under your control you may be able to handle this a little bit smarter. If the list of classes (or other registration data) hasn't changed ...

The error code you got stands for ERROR_MOD_NOT_FOUND, some dependent dll is missing on your system that both of those two programs rely on. One tool I have used a lot for finding problems like these is Dependency Walker, it analyze the dll or the ocx and tell you what other dll's it depends on. If it can't find it by static analysis you will need to do ...

I encountered this problem when trying to run Editeur on Win7 64-bit. Placing the DLL into the directory where the executable resides resolved the problem.

The problem is probably that msvcp50.dll requires one (or more) additional dlls to work. If you don't have these then the registration will fail. I'm not in a position to check what extra dlls it might need at the moment, but I would be very wary of downloading this from a non Microsoft site. You don't know what you might be getting.
