If you get a error message using regsvr32 that means nothing other than the dll is not self-registering. No big deal. Can you rename it it eoqir.dl_ and see what happens? Hey try to open the file with Notepad. That last message "eoqir does not appear to be a .dll or a .OCX file" should not have happened if you had entered the command correctly. The beginning of the sentence tells me you may not have.
