The application has failed to start because odbcbcp.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem.  Does anyone have a clue how to fix this?

Actually before I got to try this I copied that file from the i386 directory to the c:\windows\system32 directory and it worked fine.  The other application install must have deleted it for whatever reason from the system32 folder.  THANKS! :)
