Unable to open svrnetcn utility for MSDE - Rather Urgent

My company is beginning a trial of some Blackberrys and I have been trying to configure the BES to relay messages to no avail.  Working with RIM support, one of the steps tried was to make sure the appropreate protocols are enabled by opening the svrnetcn utility.  When I try I recieve a "126, Specified moduld could not be found." message.  Why? What do I do?

It is running MSDE, on a 2003 server, with Exchange 2003 SP1 System Manager installed.  I also have SharePoint services installed on this server which is also using MSDE, which I could remove if necessary, but RIM said that shouldn't be an issue.

Are you blocking port 1433? Try to telnet from the outside -

Telnet yoursevername 1433

What does that return?

I get a cannot connect to host message.  I don't have any setup here that get's me an outside IP, so this was done from home.  I figured it wouldn't work anyway.

How would I reinstall the client tools if this is only MSDE 2000 installation?

ptjcbCommented:
Check the C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\80\Tools\Bin

You should have the svrnetcn.exe there even with a MSDE installation.

Looking through the net several people used depends.exe (found at http://www.dependencywalker.com/) to find their problem.

It says I'm missing MSJAVA.dll.  I did a search on the local drives for it and nothing was found.  Can I copy it from another machine using MDSE?

I ran depends.exe against the svrnetcn.exe on a different machine, it came up with missing help.dll, but no where in that dependency is msjava.dll.  svrnetcn works on that machine too.  (Working machine is server 2000, whereas where it's not working is 2003, if that matters.)

00:00:01.172: LoadLibraryW("C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\80\Tool\BINN\svrnetcn.dll") returned NULL by thread 1. Error: The specified module could not be found (126).

I did a profile, this is the one error.

It may be that there is a firewall blocking port 1433 in Win2003 (you also could not connect to 1433 earlier). Can you telnet to 1433 on the Wind2000 server?

As I said, I don't have an outside ip setup here, but if I still try to telnet both servers on 1433 here, the w2k server fails with "could not open communication to host".  the w2003 seems that it works, but just get a blank cmd window (no prompts or errors).

Ok - this is becoming confusing:

Do you have a C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\80\Tools\Bin? Or is it C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\80\Tool\BINN\svrnetcn.dll? Notice there is a TOOLS\Bin in one and the dependency walker is looking in TOOL\Bin.

What is on the Win2000 box (where it works)?

Maybe all you need to do is create a TOOL\Bin and copy svrnetcn.dll there?

BAM!

My path was C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\80\Tools\Binn.  I created a ...\tool\binn folder and copied everything over, and it now works!

Thanks so much for the help! (Not guaranteed that this will solve my BES comm problem, but it's a step.)
