I don't understand, I have VB6 and I installed it with their install package. You cannot just install the DLL.

unzip the .dll file in
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\VB98
then go to dos prompt and type
cd C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\VB98
regsvr32 C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\VB98\MZTools3.dll
This is what i did and it worked for me
Good Luck with it

A good trick I learned some time ago.... because the command prompt is so quirky sometimes...
- Create a shortcut to regsvr32.exe and just leave it on your desktop
- Do a search on your system and find the dll you want to register
- Drag the dll with the mouse and drop it on the regsvr32 icon on your desktop
