regsvr32 fails on 64 bits windows
 
When you attempt to run Regsvr32.exe to register a 32-bit dynamic-link library (DLL) on a 64-bit version of Windows, you receive the following error message:  
 
Filename.dll is not an executable file and no registration helper is registered for this file type.  
 
Solution:
This behavior occurs because the Regsvr32.exe file in the System32 folder is a 64-bit version. When you run Regsvr32 to register a DLL, you are using the 64-bit version by default.  
 
To resolve this issue, run Regsvr32.exe from the %SystemRoot%\Syswow64 folder. For example, type the following commands to register the DLL:  
cd \windows\syswow64
regsvr32 c:\filename.dll
