Windows Error: "The module ‘schmmgmt.dll’ was loaded but the call to DllRegisterServer failed with error code 0x80040201"

Problem

The command regsvr32 schmmgmt.dll results in the error message:

The module ‘schmmgmt.dll’ was loaded but the call to DllRegisterServer failed with error code 0x80040201

Resolution

Use an elevated command prompt to register the Schema Snap-in and ensure that you are using an account that is a member of the Schema Admins group.

Additional information

If you do not run the command from an elevated command prompt or if you do not have the appropriate permissions, you may see the following error message: “The module ‘schmmgmt.dll’ was loaded but the call to DllRegisterServer failed with error code 0x80040201.” If you see this error message, check the group memberships of the user account that you are using for this operation and ensure that the user account is a member of the Schema Admins group and that you ran the command from an elevated command prompt.
