Try to register the DLL manually using regsvr, does that work? Maybe it's missing a dependency (dependency walker should tell you)

Stephan, my reading was that the OP was looking for instructions on how to install the DLL rather than registering it.

@OP, I don't think anybody here really has time to talk you through the steps you need to go through, particularly as you don't even state which MSI-authoring tool you are using.

As a first step, find and download Phil Wilson's e-book The Definitive Guide To Windows Installer.
