System Attendant and DSProxy.dll

I've seen this question asked a couple times but have yet to find a resolve to the situation.  I was hoping that someone out there has a quick fix for me.  

I just upgraded a server from Win2k to SBS2003 which as you know has the new Exchange 2003 server included.  After the install completed, I began receiving the 'System Attendant cannot start' error and the 'The DSProxy.dll is required but cannot be loaded, error C00700CB.'  I tried copying the .dll file off of the provided SBS CD with no luck.  

I am at a complete loss on this one and have really exhausted every search resource I know at this time.  I'm turning to the experts now and was hoping one of you might be able to get back to me right away with a quick fix.  Kind of stressin over this one!

Thank you!

Yeah. Tried that already and that particular service seems to start as it should perfectly.

just to make sure, at commang line type NET START and ensure the remote registry service is in fact running (I never trust the mickey mouse conlsole)

I see youve mentioned copying over the .dll So im assuming you have been reading  http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;295620
If you have proved that remote registry is running you can discount a corruption of any of the following

Also, the system attendant loads the following dynamic-link
libraries (DLLs) into its address space:
Dsaccess.dll
Dsproxy.dll
Seckm.dll
Abv_dg.dll
Ds2mb.dll
Madfb.dll
Oabgen.dll

This means that the question will fall by the wayside as all info on that error points at the remote registry service :)

Is there any specific error codes logged in the Event viewer to give us a different angle to attack it from?

This was a fresh install of Exchange 2003.  No other versions were installed/running at the time.

My colleague ended up calling Microsoft on this one.  $250.0 bucks!  Ouch.  Turned out that during the upgrade, for whatever reason, several core .dll files failed to write.  Spent 4 hours on the phone with these cats.  Thanks for the assistance none-the-less.
