FREngine Registration (Regsvr32) failed with message " FREngine.dll was loaded but call to DLLInstall failed with error code 0x8000ffff"

I am trying to deploy the ABBYY files to be able to use the OCR function in Inspire Designer. It is on a Windows system running Windows 7 Enterprise (service Pack 1). I have been able to install the ABBY FineReader SDK and registered/activated the license. When I Run the command line "run as administrator" to register DLL with command: regsvr32 /n /i:Inc "path to FREngine.dll".

It fails with message “C:\Program Files\ABBYY SDK\11\FineReader Engine\Bin64\FREngine.dll” was loaded but call to DLLInstall failed with error code 0x8000ffff.

Please let me know what I must do to fix this problem.

    To register FREngine.dll when installing your application you should use the following command line:

     regsvr32.exe /s /n /i:[Path to the Inc folder] [Path to the FREngine.dll]
    

    Possible you get the error code 0x8000ffff because you have not specified the correct path to the Inc folder.
