RRAS uninstalled on SBS 2003 cannot reinstall

I am working with a new client running Small Business Server 2003 Service Pack 1.  Their RRAS service has not been working for a while.  When you try to start the service, You get an error 1114: a dynamic link library could not be initialized.  I uninstalled the service using instsrv util, then went into Server Management to reinstall the service.  The setup result in an error.  The rraslog is as follows:

One thing you need to look at is be sure the default SBS "MyBusiness" OU is in place and in order. Make sure it hasn't been deleted or renamed.

Then in this link, in an attachment to one of the posts by Mariette is a utility called rarepair.exe. No guarantees but it might help

Did you try to uninstall the RRAS from the server, restart the machine and try to run window update or update the latest service pack. After that try to reinstall back the service.

Is the machine running any others server 2003 service?

sguinn100's link to the repair tool did the trick.  the server rebooted twice and once back online the RRAS service was installed and disabled.  I started the service and configured the ports and everything is good to go.

Thanks!
