WSUS admin page gives error on starting on win2k server

Hello,

I have installed WSUS on a Win2k Server with SP4. I have followed all the system requirements and have installed MSDE, ASP.NET, etc. etc. with all the service packs.

The installation went fine, but the webpage gives me an error.

The error I get when i try to open the WSUS admin page is 'File or assembly name xxxxx.dll, or one of its dependencies, was not found.' This dialog box has a Show details button which has the following info:


System.IO.FileNotFoundException: File or assembly name 6eaxhnrg.dll, or one of its dependencies, was not found.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled WSUS many times. But no luck :(

Thanks in advance.
