    DllRegisterServer failed with error code 0x8002801c

    I am trying to registry some dll files here. I am using regsvr32 command here. When I try the same I am getting a error on my screen. The error is some dll file is not loaded. The error also displays some DllRegisterServer failure. The error code which I got in the end is 0x8002801c. I have Windows Vista business edition here and it looks to be working really well. But there is some problem with dll files. What can I do here to fix the problem.

    That is not a big issue. You are getting that error because you are not logged in as administrator. You are using a limited account. Right click on cmd and click on run as administrator. Then just run the command and check back. Once you are logged in as admin you have full credential rights here to modify the system files. I am giving you a link below which has detail information on the problem you are facing.

    You get this error when you are not executing the commands under elevated command prompt. If you are not logged in the administrator mode to run the command prompt then the user account will not let you to change the DLL files. So to execute register dll files in elevated command prompt, click on Start and then click on All programs. After that click on Accessories and then right click on CMD and run it as admin. After that try to register the dll files which will work fine.

    Yes, you are suppose to run command prompt in administrator mode and then you can try to register flash.ocx file. To register it, simply type regsvr32 flash.ocx in command prompt that is opened in administrator mode and then press Enter. After that try to open any installed programs as administrator and it will start to open up properly. Hope this helps.
