burntout is right, just a comment:
If it doesn't fix your problem then just run the program anyway, an look at the errormessage. It will probably tell you where it expects the dll-file to reside on your hd.

Arcrass, I looked on your profile, and I see your kind of new to this site, so let me clear somthing up for you. When someone answers a question with a comment, it's bad carma to put the same answer in an answer, and try for the points your self. Burntout had the same answer before you did. :-)
