Try to register the component:

regsvr32.exe sfFTPLib.dll

I have a similar problem.
In an App we have deployed we register DLL's on runtime. Suddenly (locally) the sFTP component can not be registered again.

When registering the component via regSvr32, the following error is produced:

DLLregister in sftpLib.dll has failed. Return code was 0x80070005

Other DDL's in the same dir are registering without problems.

On Googling the error, one of the possible reasons given for this error is "user rights". I checked those. (I am full Administrator on the development machine this error occurred)

the problem appeared on October 19, afternoon. That same morning (without restarts) it was still working well.

Any clue?

Hello ..

For me it looks definitively like a permission problem. Please see the following link: ... 070005.htm

It was a permission problem, based on permissions in the registry on the keys connected to smartFTP

By manually resetting these permissions via regex32 (see link of moderator) and uninstalling the DLL, the problem was solved.

How exactly did you reset these permissions? That link seems to be outdated now
