New Exchange Server 2000 suddenly won't start says missing dll

I have a new server that was ready to replace a failing one, replication has been running for 4 days of the public folders, I successfully moved a couple of mailboxes for testing, all of a sudden, this morning I noticed on the screen a popup that says , missing dll msvcp60.dll missing, and now the information store or the exhange management service will not startup, what could have happened? Help this is supposed to go into production tomorrow!

Make sure you replace whatever service pack you had on there.  I'd be curious to know where that file is.  Did you try looking for it?  Should be in system32.  Maybe it's there but not registered?  If so, you might have registry corruption.

Try running SETUP from the Exchange server CD.
Then select to reinstall.

As for how this happened, I have no idea.

Next time it happens, check to see if the file is there.  If it is, you might have registry issues.  Keep good backups as well.  I'd hate to see you have problems in production.
