    regsvr32 shell32.dll

    I am having Windows 98 on my computer and whenever I am trying to run the regsvr32 shell32.dll command, then I will get an error message saying that "shell32 was loaded, but theDIIRegisterSever entry point was not found". I have never come accross this error in my life and dont know what it means, can anyone tell me how do i solve this problem. Thanks

    I think that regsvr32 command is used to call a function in the dll file and then it is suppose to register itself. Did you try running the same command with the /i switch, that is = regsvr32 /i shell32.dll. Check now if it works or not. It is actually just a command line tool that registers .dll files as command components in the registry.

    RegSvr32.exe has the following command-line options:
    Regsvr32 [/u] [/n] [/i[:cmdline]] dllname

    /u - Unregister server
    /i - Call DllInstall passing it an optional [cmdline]; when it is used with /u, it calls dll uninstall
    /n - do not call DllRegisterServer; this option must be used with /i
    /s Silent; display no message boxes (added in Windows XP and Windows Vista)
