This article applies to GWXMail.

When you run regsvr32 with GWXMail to register it, you may get error 0x800FFFF or a generic message
saying the registration failed.
Microsoft's REGSVR32.EXE program is used to register all Active X server components. If you don't have
the most recent version of regsvr32.exe, or don't have all the correct support files to go
with it, you may not be able to register your Active X component.
Search your hard drive to make sure you only have one copy of regsvr32.exe. If you have more
than one, delete all but the most recent.
Check Microsoft's site for a newer regsvr32.exe, especially if you are not using IIS 4.x, or haven't
applied the IIS 4.x service pack.
Make sure you have version 05.00.4319(SP2) of MSVBVM50.DLL on your system. If you need this file,
you may download it from here
or from Microsoft.
