Labview, ActiveX and N7700 Polarization Analyzer

I recently installed PAS and polarization navigator (version 3.305) on a new Windows 7 machine and I am having trouble getting LabVIEW (version 2017) to work with the instrument. On my old machine, I was using the old LV Vi's contained in the MIP.LLB library. Now, apparently they are unsupported, so I am trying to use the ActiveX libraries. I've opened up the example VI - N778xSOP.vi  in the folder C:\Program Files\Keysight\Photonic Application Suite\Examples\DemoLabView8.5 which is supposed to use AgN778xLib.IAgN778x for automation. The problem is (1) upon opening, it says that library doesn't exist and (2) if I point the automation open to the DLL AgN778xLib.dll (in C:\Program Files\Keysight\Photonic Application Suite\bin), I get an error saying the DLL is not registered. So, I registered the DLL with Windows and I still get the same error.

Any help is appreciated. I wish the older VI's were still usable since they always worked fine. Any help is appreciated.
