We are in the process of installing Solidworks 2007 SP2.1 and received the following error message:
"Error 1911: Could not register type library for file C:\Program Files\Common Files\Solidworks Shared\swBackOfficeCore.dll. Please contact your support personnel."

Client OS is running XP SP2 with all the latest OS patches. All previous Solidworks products have been removed using the SWCleanUninstall.exe application prior to running the setup.

I am using an administrative image to setup SW2007 Premium on this laptop. The install image was updated from SP0.0 to SP2.0 then to SP2.1.

I did find an Solution S-010052 dealing with this topic indicating that users might receive an eAutomation error -2147221231 but this seems like it would occur at startup not during install. The solution seems simple use regsvr32 to register the dll...
