Error accessing OLE registry: 8002801c
When registering a DLL, you get the following error: DllRegisterServer in COM failed. Return code was: 0x8002801c
  1. Make sure that you are logged into the computer as local Administrator, or are part of the local Administrator group.
  2. To identify which registry key is causing the problem use Regmon (a freeware tool published by SysInternals). Use Regmon to capture all registry access when regsvr32 is run. If an ‘OpenKey’ request fails with ‘Access Denied’ (which is listed by Regmon as ‘ACCDENIED’) then run regedt32 and check the permissions on that registry key. If necessary change the permissions on the key to grant local Administrators ‘Full Control’.
  3. Finally, try registering the COM object again.
