IIS DLL Folder Mixup

Hello,

I'm currently in the process of getting my asp pages to work with a Dll file connecting to a MSSQL Server database on my ISP's.  Problem is that we now have the MSSQL Server database setup, the Server DSN is setup.  But i'm getting an error that says :

Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80004005'

[Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver] Could not find file '(unknown)'.

/managemovies.asp, line 43

At this line of code, all i'm doing is :
'Initialize objects      
Set frCMS = Server.CreateObject("FrontRow.CMS")

I think this new error is occuring because technical engineers
at ISP instructed me to place DLL file in a separated folder in
my root directory.  Before i had the DLL in my root directory
and had no problems.

Ho can i ensure that when i call a create Object function,
my ASP page will know to look in a specified directory
for the DLL file ?


Thanks
