This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hello Team,

I want to know why we can't re-register the VSS dll's on windows 2008.

Is there any article available where I will find the perfect reason in details.  Also if I re-register the VSS dll's on windows 2008, then what all those difficulties and issues I will faced after that.

Read the MS TN below

in particular, note this

This article is not for use with Windows Vista, with Windows Server 2008, or with later Windows operating systems. Starting with Windows Vista and with Windows Server 2008, Windows component installation is manifest-based. Trying to manually register specific components, as described in the following steps, can have unexpected results that may require you to reinstall Windows to resolve.

        Awesome techdocs provided above by Craig and PKH. Not really much more to be said. Note that VSS issues outside of restarting the box to bring the writer back to a state 1 stable state would be best troubleshot by M.S. The pararagh following  PKH's qoute above ends with "For more information please contact Microsoft, or refer to their documentation." This may be the best/safest course of action. 

I hope this posting was helpful
