Could not load DLL

Hi,

I am in the middle of building a replacement to our production database box. I've followed the steps below:

Install Win 2003 Std (Non-R2)
Install SQL 2000
Restore database
Install xp_regex package and check DLL location/permissions
Configure client software.

I managed to access the software/database with no problems whatsoever.

I then continued to upgrade to SQL Server 2005 Standard, and after some re-configuing work I was able to connect to the client software. Now, whenever I try to save certain information (Job Record) I get the following error:

"Could not save the information

Details: Could not load the DLL C:\program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL\Binn\xp_regex.dll, or one of the DLLs it references. Reason: 1114(error not found)."

This error has only appeared since installed SQL 2005, so I assume there is a compatibility issue between xp_regex and SQL 2005. xp_regex needs to be running for the client software to work properly.

I've been referred to http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;Q322884 previously and all attempts to clear the error have failed.

I need to get the database running on SQL 2005 (as 2000 is soon to become unsupported) and all that's stopping me is this one error and it's beginning to drive me mad.

Please could someone have a look at it, and offer advice as I'm running out of things to try in order to resolve the error.

Thanks in advance!

This probably has something to do with the version of .NET you're running. Look at this article maybe it can help you:

I've had a look and it doesn't seem to be the .net version as all the updates were installed before upgrading to 2005.

The client database is based on the .net 1.1 framework (soon to be upgraded to 2). The problem seems to be within SQL 2005.

I've checked the permissions for DLLs, ensured that xp_regex and xp_pcre have been installed/DLLs referenced and the execute permissions given to the user which connects to the software.

What else could I try?
