error while loading shared libraries

After installed Cedega and Point2Play to Mandrake 10.1 got this error message while running Point2Play:

sh: error while loading shared libraries: /usr/lib/transgaming_point2play/lib/libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0.200.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Don't really understand the problem with the libraries as the file which the error message says does exit. Tried add the directory to the $PATH, $LD_LIBRARY_PATH, added different paths to /etc/ld.so.conf - file etc.. nothing seem to help. If I only understood what's going on.. could it just be that Mandrake 10.1 and latest Transgaming products are not compatible?

Versions I'm using:

Cedega 4.3.1
Point2Play 1.3.3
Mandrake 10.1 AMD 64 (kernel
NVidia FX 5200 with the Nvidia drivers.. 6110 if I remember correctly

ldd /usr/lib/transgaming_point2play/lib/libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0.200.4

The error may not be that it can't find this file, but rather, cannot find a dependency of this file.  (library errors can be especially cryptic sometimes)

Also, make sure you run 'ldconfig' after making any changes to /etc/ld.so.conf

Very true that is the problem but didn't solve it. Actually finally Transgaming helpdesk assisted me on this and said I need to use different rpm-package Point2Play-small - rpm for AMD64.. well, worked after this.

As you said library errors are cryptic sometimes and to me those have always been a pain.. anyway, no need to continue troubleshooting anymore. Thanks a lot, perheps I need to start browsing library cases a bit more for future purposes..
