Found the problem.  The ssscc.dll file was not registering on boot.  Changed the statement  
 
{regsvr32 C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\Microsoft Visual Studio\Common\VSS\win32\ssscc.dll\1 }
to
{regsvr32 "C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\Microsoft Visual Studio\Common\VSS\win32\ssscc.dll"}
 
in the registry every time it showed up in a search.
 
Works fine now.
