Problem in registering DLL using DOS on Windows 7

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -


I am using Windows 7 ultimate on HP machine, i try to register a DLL file using DOS which i have to use in my project, when i try to install this file it popup with the following message.


The module "wps.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.

The specified module could not be found.


Note: i have a copy the file in the system32 folder but still get the same message.

Can anyone help me to sort this problem.

Hi Dennis K,


You have to take the ownership of the system32 folder.

  1. Open Windows Explorer, and go to C:>Windows>System32

  2. Right-click the System32 folder, click Properties, and then click the Security tab.

  3. Click Advanced, and then click the Owner tab.

  4. Click Edit, And select Administrator or the username then apply.(Optional) To change the owner of all subcontainers and objects within the tree, select the Replace owner on subcontainers and objects check box

  5. Go back to Security tab, And click edit then click Administrator  and check full control. then apply.

  6. Then after  taking the ownership, Go to start menu and type "cmd". The you will see cmd.exe the Right click and Run as      Administrator. Then register your .dll
