xp_grantlogin fails in 6.5

Ok what am I doing wrong
using xp_grantlogin <login>
gives this
Cannot find the function 'xp_grantLogin' in the library 'xplog60.dll'. Reason: '(null)'

I am running sp5a If I replace the dll mentioned with that from sp4 it works!

Read about "Error 2812" from Books Online.
It's therefrom:

"
Severity Level 16

Message Text
Stored procedure '%.*s' not found.

Explanation
An attempt was made to execute a stored procedure that does not exist. If the procedure does exist (it appears when sp_help is run with no parameters), the error might have occurred because you did not fully qualify the procedure name. If the procedure is not owned by the user attempting to execute it, and it is not owned by the database owner (DBO), all references to it must include the owner name. For example, suppose user1 creates a procedure called proc1. Any users must add the owner name before the procedure name, as shown in the following example:
execute user1.proc1

Naming conventions for database objects are as follows:
[[database.]owner.]object_name.column_name
"

This is my test example:

USE pubs
GO

xp_grantlogin 'TestAcc', 'admin'
GO

This is the results set:

"
Msg 2812, Level 16, State 4
Stored procedure 'xp_grantlogin' not found.
"

It's correct version:

exec master..xp_grantlogin 'TestAcc', 'admin'

This is the results set:

"
Granted.
"       

I checked it with sp5a.

SELECT @@version

Try this (may be this helps):

USE master
GO

if exists (select * from sysobjects
                where sysstat & 0xf = 4
                        and name = 'xp_grantlogin')
        exec sp_dropextendedproc 'xp_grantlogin'
GO

sp_addextendedproc 'xp_grantlogin', 'xplog60.dll'
GO
