Regsvr32: DllRegisterServer failed with error code 0x80070716

Jul 27 '16 at 08:54

I ran the 64bit and 32bit bat on W2008 64bit server; however, I receive the following error …

The Module “ChikatAx-9.5.0-win32.dll” was loaded but the call to DllRegisterServer failed with error code 0x80070716.
For more information about this problem, search online using the error code as a search term.


The ActiveX registration script must be run with administrative privileges. On Windows 8, you may right-click on the .bat file and select "Run as Administrator".

To register the 32-bit DLL on a 64-bit Windows system, run the register_x64.bat script with administrative privileges.

Notice that the 32-bit ActiveX download contains two .bat scripts for registration: register_win32.bat and register_x64.bat. The choice of which to run depends on whether the operating system is 64-bit Windows or 32-bit Windows. Given that you are on 64-bit Windows, run register_x64.bat (with administrative privileges of course).


I also have the same problem, and the solution offered by chilkat here does not work. I am on 64-bit Windows 7 Professional attempting to register 32-bit DLL ChikatAx-9.5.0-win32.dll. I run register_x64.bat "as administrator" and get the error as above:

The Module “ChikatAx-9.5.0-win32.dll” was loaded but the call to DllRegisterServer failed with error code 0x80070716.

Are there alternative solutions? Thanks.


Yes. Re-download the v9.5.0.38 from

The v9.5.0.38 that went out yesterday had an issue in the ActiveX/COM wrapping because of the new TrustedRoots object. (The .rgs resource for TrustedRoots was not included in the resources.)

I re-uploaded and all should be OK now.


Thanks. Re-downloaded and successfully registered.


Installing on a Windows 7, 32bits, still gives error when registering DLL file.

Even tried with versions and With msi and zip version Always running with "admin privileges"

Please help me register it, as I need to use this great activex! Thanks
