I am afraid that this is a bug. I have found some work around on MetaLink site you can try (bug:2171024):
...
Have confirmed that the exact same issue exists on Windows XP as on Windows 2000 and the workaround is the same:
1) remove or rename sql16w95.dll (it is not needed).
or (preferred method)
2) use the registry update script to set the windows compatibility options to allow 16 bit ofsa to work (this has been provided to support in the past).  This is adding the following values to the key       \HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\Windows  NT\CurrentVersion\Compatibility
.
OFSPA:REG_SZ:0x00200000
OFSBC:REG_SZ:0x00200000
