i cannot use libcurl.dll in my MS-Access Application.

I copied Libcurl.dll to systems32.
I use the following Code:

        Private Declare Function curl_easy_init Lib "libcurl.dll" () As Long

        Function CURL_GET(URL) As String
        Dim Temp, H As Long
            H = curl_easy_init()
            Temp = curl_easy_setopt(H, 1, "C:\tmp\Antwort.txt")
            Temp = curl_easy_setopt(H, 2, URL)
            curl_easy_perform (H)
            curl_easy_cleanup (H)
        End Function

Executing the first Statement H=curl_easy_init() gives the error:
"Run-time Error '53':
 File not fount: libcurl.dll"

Apparently the library is not in a format that is recognised by Visual
When I try to register the Library with:
"regscr32 c:\winnt\system32\libcurl.dll"
a similar error message is appearing.

Has anyone got a Version of libcurl.dll or annother intermediate Library
that works with microsoft Visual Basic?

Mit freundlichen Grüßen
