Unable to Load DLL 'MSVCR80.dll' when upgrading to SQL Server 2008 Express

I'm using a Windows Server 2003 computer and trying to upgrade from SQL Server Express 2005 to SQL Server Express 2008 and getting the error "unable to load DLL 'MSVCR80.dll':  The specified module could not be found.  (Exception from HRESULT: 0X8007007E)".  I've located the file in several place on the hard drive.  How can I get past this error and upgrade SQL Server?

Thanks, I'll try this as soon as I can.
No problem - report back how you get on - a weird one if MS products cant cope with MS software being installed.....
Thanks
